American Horse Council Wants Comprehensive Equine Resource Directory | Horse News and Equine Events

You need to know what to do about your horse’s sore leg. You want to know more about what to feed your pregnant mare. And you would love to find a good podcast about your equine discipline.

It sounds like you need a one-stop-shop directory for all things equine, and the American Horse Council (AHC) Youth Engagement Task Force and American Youth Horse Council are on the job. The organizations recently announced a joint project to create a comprehensive equine directory known as The Source Book.

The Youth Engagement Task Force has 15 members from across all breeds and disciplines and has been looking to compile equine educational resources for parents, students and educators, said Julie Broadway, president of the AHC.

It’s not the first attempt at such an endeavor. In 1999, the AHC published an equine guide, which included a list of brochures, CDs, publications and other educational material. To keep pace with available technology, the new guide will be online at the youth council and AHC websites, and include online learning platforms, podcasts, e-publications, internship opportunities and content appealing to all ages.

“One of the missions of the American Horse Council (is) to provide as many doors to opportunities as possible to all horse owners and enthusiasts,” Broadway said. “And it is the mission of the (youth council) to provide leadership and resources that will serve and promote the youth of the equine industry. Partnering on this Source Book is just a small part of what both groups can do to help enthusiasts, supporters and everyone in the industry.”

Sources of the information will include equine associations, equine nonprofits, academic institutions and Cooperative Extension services. Because of its digital format, the directory can be updated with new information as it becomes available.

“We hope this will become the go-to source for all things the equine industry offers,” said Broadway, encouraging any horse organization to feel free to contribute information for inclusion in The Source Book.

Equine associations and nonprofit organizations may submit information for free until Oct. 1, via the form here.
