The horse industry in Iowa is growing faster than ever before. From activities surrounding horse breeding, showing, racing, housing, training, riding and care, it employs more than 2,100 people and accounts for millions in revenue each year. The economic impact from horse breeding and owning is doing much to support our state’s ag-centric economy, and we need you to play an important part in making this message heard.
The Iowa Thoroughbred Breeders and Owners Association, with support from the Iowa Quarter Horse Racing Association and the Iowa Horsemen’s Benevolent and Protective Association, is launching a media campaign in central Iowa this November that will use television, online, direct mail/email and social media marketing to educate the general public about the broad economic benefits of horse racing in Iowa. ITBOA needs everyone to be vocal in supporting this effort. Your voice can help us grow the industry and keep it strong for years to come.
