2014 Report on the Economic Impact of Equestrian Activities in Sonoma County

Sonoma State’s 2014 Report on the Economic Impact of Equestrian Activities in Sonoma County was presented to the Board of Supervisors on Tuesday, August 12th and was enthusiastically received by the Supervisors.

The headline is: There are an estimated 26,217 horses (and other equines) in Sonoma County which generate direct and indirect spending of $613 million annually and support 7,700 jobs and provide over $11 million in local tax revenues to Sonoma County every year.  We are fortunate to have a Board of Supervisors that embraces and appreciates the importance of the horse industry to the economy and culture of Sonoma County.  Our challenge now is to capitalize on this enthusiasm and take the steps that we need to preserve, protect and grow the horse industry in this wonderful county of ours.
