The world may not acknowledge it, but we definitely acknowledge the contribution of the Equine industry to the economy of America and how it has helped in the growth of the market. For years, people, especially women, have expressed a profound interest in getting the ownership of the finest breed horses for their great mansions. It is very common among wealthy businessmen to walk the lands of Kentucky with their horses which leads us to the fact that the maintenance of these horses requires a lot more effort and money for the owners. Therefore, these businessmen or horse owners opt for people who could care for these divine creatures and train them for future endeavors.
Data collected in recent years show that the equine industry has a huge role to play in the American economy. The fact that this industry has become the source of 1.4 million jobs or more is enough to reciprocate its significance in the country. The statistics also show that the contribution of this industry to the country’s economy is calculated to be around $39 billion. Having said that, it is the country’s duty to provide these businessmen with the best opportunities so they can help in the growth of the market.
Surprisingly enough, it is women that find pleasure in owning horses when compared to men. For the daily activities and routines like horse breeding, grooming, exercising, and training, owners, hire candidates with expertise because as mundane as it sounds, horses are high maintenance animals and must be looked after by the perfect candidate.
Apart from horse owners, a huge part of an industry called Professional racing is a major contributor to the American economy. Since Racehorses need special care, their expenses are also above the scale. Special racehorse trainers are hired by the managers to keep them fit for the events ahead. It is important to note that despite losing interest in horses, many parts of America are still a part of this industry for years and willing to continue this bond in the future.
