The 2023 New Jersey Equine Industry Summit – Summit Proceedings

The 2023 New Jersey Equine Industry Summit, hosted on Thursday, March 16, 2023, at the Cook Student Center in New Brunswick, brought together equine leaders, professionals, veterinarians, educators, owners, and enthusiasts throughout the tri-state area.

This all-day event included a keynote presentation on the “Economic Analysis of Equine Operations: Reducing Costs for Horse and Horse Farm Owners”; a panel discussion on “The State of the U.S. Racing Industry” with the President of the Jockey Club, Jim Gagliano, and The Executive Director of the U.S. Trotting Association, Mike Tanner; and afternoon breakout sessions on a wide range of topics.

Breakout sessions focused on horse health, the future of racing, land use policy, environmental stewardship, the integrity of equestrian sport, and industry sustainability by engaging youth in equine activities and leadership roles. The Center’s needs assessment survey of industry participants was also a special feature of the program, where Dr. Alisa Herbst reviewed some of the preliminary results.
