BATON ROUGE, LA—DECEMBER 7, 2018—A promotional video touting the $2 billion dollar economic impact the horse industry currently has on the state of Louisiana has been released.

The Louisiana horse industry has a $2 billion economic impact across the state touching every parish and community as one of the state’s top ten agricultural industries. Many top performing athletes and horses were born and bred in Louisiana. The state is one of the top three horse producing states in the nation.

Prominent Louisiana horsemen, including Louisiana Thoroughbred Breeders’ Association President, owner and breeder Warren Harang III are featured on the five minute video discussing all aspects of the state’s strong equine connections from Thoroughbred and Quarter Horse racing and breeding programs to therapeutic equine programs.

Joining Harang on the video are Louisiana’s Governor John Bel Edwards; Lt. Governor Billy Nungesser; Louisiana Quarter Horse Breeders Association President Ryan Robicheaux; Cleve Weisgerber, past-president of the Louisiana Stock Horse Association; and former Carolina Panthers Super Bowl Quarterback Jake Delhomme, who is 1st vice-president of the LTBA.

Lt. Governor Nungesser also introduces the state’s Louisiana Horse Tourism website Louisiana Horse Tourism has compiled an extensive database of all equine services provided throughout the state.

Nungesser says the Louisiana Horse Tourism’s goal is to benefit the equine businesses in Louisiana by gathering an awareness of the industry to others outside the state.
