Joint Leadership Council Works Together to Support Barns Through COVID-19



The Joint Leadership Council, Arabian Horse Association, and horse show professionals are collectively working together through a newly formed JLC Industry Re-Opening Task Force to address the concerns, protocols, and procedures of re-opening our industry in the wake of COVID-19.
 
Our united leadership is dedicated to the safety and welfare of horses and members. To assist in mitigating the potential impact of COVID-19, this task force is working on developing guidelines and resources to assist competition organizers and participants in managing risk. 
 
This survey is a starting point to establish the feelings, interests, and position of our members. The survey will be open for responses until Friday, April 24 @ 5 pm ET. We greatly appreciate all members from the trotting breed community taking the time to respond. Data from this survey will serve the task force as they work to help the safety, welfare, and best interest of our community.
 
When the Joint Leadership Council was created we obviously did not foresee a crisis like this, but we have been impressed by how much more effective working together has been in joint matters.  The whole of the trotting horse industry is much greater than the sum of its individual parts. Let's continue to work together and make a difference. More information on the JLC COVID-19 efforts available at www.jlccares.com

Survey Available Here.
