Kentucky Equine Survey
2012 Kentucky Equine Survey
A comprehensive statewide survey of all breeds of horses, ponies, donkeys and mules
The last thorough equine inventory in Kentucky was undertaken in 1977, leaving the state’s equine industry with 35 years of changes, growth and contraction that were neither measured nor analyzed.
In response to these needs, in 2011, the University of Kentucky and the Kentucky Horse Council, with support by industry organizations spearheaded by the Kentucky Quarter Horse Association, the Kentucky Thoroughbred Farm Managers’ Club and Kentucky Thoroughbred Association/Kentucky Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders, and initial support from the University of Louisville, succeeded in securing funding for a large-scale, comprehensive equine survey upon which future industry plans could be built. This was no small accomplishment, because many groups, including the Kentucky Equine Education Project, spent years laying the groundwork that eventually helped make this happen.
