ACT NOW! Maryland Horse Council Survey
The Maryland Horse Council requests your input.
As the industry’s trade association, the MHC protects and promotes the entire horse community by providing a united voice in the Maryland state legislature, interacting with the media, and keeping members informed on issues that affect them and their horses. The MHC is updating its goals and priorities as part of a new 5-year strategic plan, but needs to know what is important to members of Maryland’s horse community to do so.
You don’t have to be a member of the horse council to participate. In fact, we need input from everyone… the occasional rider, the business owner, the breeder, the show parent, the veterinarian and everyone in between. We invite you to take the MD Horse Community Survey available online at http://qrs.ly/na6tgch. The survey will take approximately 10-12 minutes to complete and covers a wide range of equine-related topics. As a thank you, participants, if interested, can be entered into a random drawing for a free ticket to the MHC BBQ, scheduled for September 8, 2018 at Paradise Stables.
Responses from all segments of the horse community are vital to the strategic planning process. There is a May 5 deadline, so please fill out the survey today. Thank you!
