Thank you for showing your support for the equine industry over the last few years! As an active industry stakeholder, we are pleased to introduce you to the newly formed California Horse Power Coalition.
Horse racing is a popular sport among Californians – 30.5% of households in California have a horse enthusiast in their home – but the industry has a greater impact than many people realize. Through this coalition, we aim to educate the public about these benefits and create space to share resources and information.
This November, we hit the ground running by announcing our coalition to the California Horse Racing Board. Now, as we move into 2023, we look forward to providing you with updates and opportunities to get involved in our work to showcase the industry’s impact on the economy, jobs, tourism, agricultural sustainability, and culture of our state.
