Equine industry source book to be updated

The American Horse Council and the American Youth Horse Council are recreating a directory of equine educational resources.

The latest trend is to resurrect things that were once considered new. In light of that trend, two esteemed equine institutions are bringing back a vital piece of informative material to assist the equine industry, according to a July 19 news release from the American Horse Council (AHC).

Refreshing a resource

The AHC and the American Youth Horse Council (AYHC) have joined forces to recreate a directory of equine educational resources known as The Source Book.

Originally published in 1999, the AYHC’s Source Book included a list of brochures, CDs, publications and other educational material. Since then, technology has delivered a wider variety of resources that now includes online learning platforms, podcasts, e-publications and more. It was time to refresh and bring back The Source Book.

The updated list will include resources that are provided by equine associations, equine nonprofits, academic institutions and Cooperative Extension Services. The Source Book will be available as an online tool on both the AYHC and AHC websites.

‘Doors to opportunities’

“One of the missions of the American Horse Council to provide as many doors to opportunities as possible to all horse owners and enthusiasts,” says Julie Broadway, president of the AHC. “And it is the mission of the AYHC 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.”

Submissions are free and are being accepted by all equine associations and nonprofit organizations until October 1, 2023. To be a part of this revolutionary resource list, complete the following form: https://forms.gle/S9918UmTdvom5fA26 .
