U.S. Equine Market, 3rd Edition


The U.S. equine industry continues along a path of slow decline, despite renewed consumer interest in horses spurred on by some historic horse racing in the last few years. Horse ownership levels have dropped, and with fewer new foal registrations every year, the equine industry is looking at fewer horses to feed and care for in the years ahead. But marketers within the equine industry remain optimistic and appear to believe that the worst is behind them.
