Learn About The New Electronic Logging Device Laws

(Washington, DC) – The American Horse Council (AHC) will host its 1st Quarter 2018 webinar on Monday, February 12th at 3:00 pm ET and will address the recent Electronic Logging Device (ELD) Mandate that has caused much confusion and a lot of questions throughout the equine industry.

We have been getting quite a few phone calls and emails

“We have been getting quite a few phone calls and emails with questions about the ELD Mandate and how it is going to not only affect the industry, but individuals as well,” said AHC President, Julie Broadway. “We hope that holding a webinar addressing the mandate would be a compliment to the brochures we have already put together on this issue.”

The webinar will address the details of what the ELD Mandate includes, and who is required to have an electronic logging device. We will also discuss requirements for Commercial Driver’s License (CDL), as well as what the AHC is doing to mitigate the effects of the proposed changes on the equine industry.

Both AHC members and non-members are encouraged to attend the webinar. The webinar will also be recorded and posted on the AHC website for those that could not attend. You can register online here, and you will receive an email with login instructions two days before the webinar date.

In an effort to help provide clarity to the ELD Mandate, the AHC has put together two brochures that provide insight into this already complex issue.

About the American Horse Council

The American Horse Council was organized in 1969 to represent the horse industry in Washington before Congress and the federal regulatory agencies.  It is a non-profit corporation that represents all segments of the equine industry.

Mission of the American Horse Council

To advocate for the social, economic and legislative interests of the United States equine industry.

Goal of the American Horse Council

The goal of the AHC is to ensure that the industry works together in Washington to accomplish our ultimate goal of “Keeping Opportunities Open” for the horse industry.  The AHC believes that consensus and coordinated action by our members in dealing with federal legislation and regulations is the best way to accomplish our goal. The AHC works toward those ends whenever possible.

Vision of the American Horse Council

The vision of the AHC is to be recognized and supported by horse owners and breeders, equine organizations, participants and stakeholders in the industry, members of Congress and federal officials as the primary representative of the horse industry in Washington.

To accomplish our goal and satisfy this vision, the AHC must work effectively with all federal officials to ensure each understands the economic, agricultural, sporting and recreational importance of the horse industry.

We hope that by doing this these federal officials will support a legislative and regulatory structure for the industry, both domestically and internationally, that encourages individuals and other entities to support and participate in the industry, to invest in our horses, and to sponsor and support our events and activities.

The AHC believes that the more opportunities available to use horses in various activities, the better the overall health of the industry and those who participate.
