Equine Welfare Advocacy
Standing Committee Per Bylaws
The Equine Welfare committee is responsible for monitoring animal welfare issues that are of concern to the saddlebred horse industry, identifying and prioritizing concerns and opportunities, evaluating related information and determining actions or activities that may be appropriate. Members of this committee are appointed by the President of the Board and are accountable to the Board of Directors (BOD) of the ASHBA. This is a standing committee.
Following are the primary responsibilities of the committee:
1. Identify state and national organizations as part of a rescue referral program for membership.
2. Evaluate and apprise the ASHBA BOD regarding proposed state and/or federal legislation affecting the saddlebred industry.
3. Seek to affiliate the ASHBA with prominent industry groups (i.e., the American Horse Council (AHC)).
4. Recommend ways that the ASHBA can be more proactive regarding equine health and welfare issues.
