Saddle Up For the Congressional Cavalry Program
RELEASE: October 7, 2008
AUTHOR/ADMINISTRATOR: Sarah Evers
In an effort to better represent and serve the horse industry in Washington DC, the American Horse Council (AHC) and the United States Equestrian Federation have organized a new grassroots effort entitled, “The Congressional Cavalry program.” United States Equestrian Federation members can participate and help to make a difference in federal legislation and regulations that affect the horse industry.
A new Congress will begin in January of 2009. If you care about the national issues that impact you and the horse community now is the time to get involved.
All United States Equestrian Federation members, including owners, breeders, veterinarians, trainers, competitors, service providers and others who wish to be involved in grassroots efforts in Washington are encouraged to join the Congressional Cavalry program. The purpose of the program is to enlist individuals from all segments of the horse industry and in every Congressional district who will agree to contact their Representative/Senator or federal official when asked.
Calvary members will be mobilized when there is a need for grassroots contacts, such as letters and phone calls. Members of the program will be put on an email or fax list so they can be contacted and activated quickly. The AHC will provide participants with whatever information is necessary. Participants will be free to do as much as they feel comfortable doing.
If you want to sign up or have any additional questions about the Congressional Cavalry program, please contact the American Horse Council at (202) 296-4031 or email@example.com
