There are very few statistics on horses and horse related activities in Australia, and this limits what the Australian Horse Industry Council can do to obtain help for our industry.
The council is currently undertaking a short survey to find out more information about our industry. The AHIC is asking members of the horse community to take part in the survey and provide some information.
The data gathered will help the council by providing facts and figures they can use to represent the horse industry when talking to Councils, State and Federal governments as well as individual government departments.
