(Washington, DC)- On January 20th, the transfer of power in Washington, DC officially begins with the traditional Inaugural Parade. Over 3,000 organizations applied to march in the parade, with only 40 being selected. Of those 40, nine of them are equine organizations,

“We are pleased to see the equine community being well represented during the Inaugural Parade,” said American Horse Council President Julie Broadway. “Equines were an integral part of the foundation of the United States, and Presidents throughout history have appreciated and admired the grandeur of the horse.”

The most recognized equines in the parade will be the Caisson Platoon from Fort Myer, VA. In addition to their well-known, solemn duty of military funerals, the Caisson Platoon also participates in numerous historic processions performed by the Old Guard, as well as the notable honor of being included in Presidential Inaugural Parades.

The Michigan Multi-Jurisdiction Mounted Police Drill Team & Color Guard, from Ann Arbor, MI, will be participating in the Inaugural Parade for the third time. The Michigan Horse Council (MHC) will also be well represented, as MHC President Col. Don Packard, US Army Retired, will carry the MHC flag in the parade. This is also the first time a person not a member of mounted law enforcement has ridden with the group. “We are excited to be coming to Washington, DC,” said Col. Packard. “There are 23 riders in this group, and they are bringing along a support staff of another 20 people who are also honored to be a part of such a historic event.”

The 1st Infantry Commanding General’s Mounted Color Guard of Ft. Riley, KS will also be participating in this year’s Inaugural Parade. Established in 1992, the Commanding General's Mounted Color Guard (CMCG) provides a link to Fort Riley's historic past. Troopers and horses of this unit are outfitted in the uniforms, accessories and equipment of the Civil War period. From privates to officers, these men and women recreate American Horse Soldier at community events, parades, and official ceremonies. At the AHC’s recent Coalition of State Horse Council’s Fall meeting in October, the CMCG did a demonstration for meeting attendees at Kansas State University and then a short meet/greet with Q&A about their program.

The AHC looks forward to seeing all of the equestrian organizations with the distinct honor of participating in the parade. For more information on the Inaugural Parade, please visit the informational website here.

American Horse Council President Julie Broadway will provide keynote address

The Kentucky Equine Education Project will convene a gathering of horse industry leaders and policy makers from across the state to discuss ways to protect and promote the Commonwealth’s signature industry. The Equine Industry Conference will take place on October 17-18 at the Embassy Suites on Newtown Pike in Lexington, KY.

“KEEP is proud to bring leaders from across the state together to discuss the challenges we face as an industry and how best to build on recent success,” said Joe Clabes, KEEP Executive Director. This will be a great opportunity to hear diverse perspectives on all aspects of Kentucky’s equine economy.

The conference will begin Monday afternoon with partner organization meetings and other breakout sessions, followed by an evening welcome reception providing casual networking opportunities. During Tuesday’s sessions, equine industry leaders and experts will participate in panel discussions regarding the current state of the equine economy and how to improve the outlook for the future. Presentations will include a review of economic data, legislative and regulatory discussion by key policy experts and information about innovative programs to support the equine economy through improved business marketing, tourism opportunities and new industry-based initiatives.

The lunch program on Tuesday will feature an address by Julie Broadway, who was named President of the American Horse Council (AHC) earlier this year. Ms. Broadway will discuss AHC initiatives, including the effort to update the National Economic Impact Study. She will also provide insight into what the horse industry can expect from Washington in the coming months.

“The 1996 and 2005 Economic Impact Studies gave incredible insight to an industry that operates in every corner of the country, and contributes greatly to the American culture and economy. We are looking forward to seeing how the 2017 study will be able to further illustrate the importance of our diverse industry,” said Julie Broadway. “With a new Congress coming into Washington in November, it’s more important than ever that the AHC continue to play a critical role in the long term success of the industry, and ensure a favorable legislative environment for the industry to come.”

Tuesday's luncheon will also include an awards presentation honoring an individual and organization that have distinguished themselves through their leadership in Kentucky’s horse industry.
