Alberta Horse Industry


Horse Industry Association of Alberta was at Aggie Days April 6-10 2011. Our booth was full of everything horse-related from saddles and tack to manure. During the three weekdays, over 10 000 students and 2000 teachers, parents, and supervisors visited and learned all about Alberta's agriculture. Family Fun Days on the weekend attracted around 17 000 each day.

Equine Canada has just released its 2010 Canadian Equine Industry Profile Study — the State of the Industry. The 2010 study reports on statistical data derived from the largest equine industry participant survey sample ever completed in Canada. The demographic and economic information garnered in the survey underlines the significant role Canada’s equine industry plays in the country’s overall economic health.   "This is the broadest and the deepest analysis of the state of Canada's equine nation our sector has ever produced," states Akaash Maharaj, Chief Executive Officer of Equine Canada.  "Our report confirms the enormous — but too often underestimated — contribution made by Canadian equestrians to our country's economy and quality of life.  It also empowers us with the fact base we need to work with the government of Canada to improve our country's public policy framework for Canadian equestrians: to uphold higher standards of horse welfare, to expand theEC_report_cover Canadian equine industry domestically and internationally and to better serve the hundreds of thousands of Canadian horse people from coast to coast to coast."


Volume 33, Number 11, issue of Quarter Horse News featured a story written by Bridget Kirkwood Cook entitled "A Head Worth Saving." The article advocates wearing a helmet when riding a horse. A six year study on horse-related deaths from Alberta is cited in the article.
