    Name: What Are Your Equine Industry Needs? Join the Discussion with OHC
    Date: March 24, 2018
    Time: 5:00 PM - 6:30 PM PDT
    Event Description:
    Oregon Horse Country has existed as a state-wide association for nearly 5 years now.  During that time, the organization has made many changes to work on filling the voids in the equine industry, be a voice for equestrians all over Oregon, and add valuable programming, marketing, networking, and education. 

    WE NOW WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU!  While doing our work, we have talked to thousands of equestrians at booths, events, and through our office, which has helped guide our board in what OHC needed to work on.  However, we now want to come to you and hear more of the concerns, issues, and ideas that equestrians across Oregon have.  Anyone involved with horses are welcome!  From casual owners to serious competitors, equine support businesses (feed stores, tack sellers, farm/ranch insurance or real estate agents), trainers, association representatives, etc.

    OHC staff and board will be hosting 8-10 Focus Groups across the state in 2018.  Each meeting will start with a short presentation about OHC: our creation, our evolutions, programming, current work, priorities for the future, etc.  Then we will open the event up to 60 minutes of open discussion covering a variety of topics.  The goal of these sessions is to hear from equestrians and get feedback on where we could be more valuable to the industry, issues that you face, concerns for your area, and ideas on how we can grow Oregon Horse Country's programs. A survey will be provided to attendees allowing additional comments or feedback to be submitted. Staff and board members will also be available after sessions for private conversations.

    Please watch for our list of locations and dates.  Currently we have scheduled the following sessions.  Please RSVP via provided link so that we can make sure the space is set up for enough seats.  Your input is very important to us, so we hope that you join us and help form the future for the equine industry across Oregon!  These sessions will be interactive
