Environmentally Sustainable with Horses for August 1, 2023 by American Horse Council

Aug 1, 2023

Horse owners are some of the biggest supporters of the environment. They understand the importance of green space, access to fresh water and mild temperatures to ride. Julie and Megan speak with two Colorado State University students who presented their research on how one show facility in Helsinki, Finland, is utilizing its own occupants’ waste for power—that’s right: Manure for Electricity. Then, the AHC’s Health, Welfare and Regulatory Affairs Liaison, Emily Stearns, talks about the horse industry working alongside the Environmental Protection Agency and what “green” legislation might affect the horse industry. Finally, Julie shares an update on the Equine Economic Impact Survey, which is ongoing through September 29.
