Press Release - 25 September 2014

The Headwaters Horse County initiative has evolved over the past seven years into a collaboration of community stakeholders driven to grow, support and advocate for the equine industry in the Headwaters. With over 23,000 horses, over 2,000 horse farms, hundreds of businesses that support horses and their owners and four internationally recognized event facilities, there is no doubt that the sector is vital to the local economy.
