Derbyshire Support for CLA's New Equine Policy
The equine sector generates a turnover of around £5billion a year for the rural economy – but it is also one of the most fragmented sectors and without the right policy and advisory framework its economic potential will remain underexploited.
That's the message contained in a new equine business report published today (22 March) by the CLA which claims that the equine industry is being held back by restrictions on planning, insurance and tax.
The document, titled "Clearing Hurdles" was launched by equestrian legend, Lucinda Green, supported by Judith Norris, chairman of the Equine Business Working Group and CLA President and Herefordshire Landowner Harry Cotterell – who said that the aim of the document was to help promote a modern and thriving equine business sector.
Yvonne Evans runs New Direction learning and education centre, at Ringer Villa, Clowne, Derbyshire in the grounds of a small farm and equestrian facility. She said: "As East Midlands Network Coordinators for EAGALA, we welcome the promotion of the equine industry.
"Here at New Direction, we provide a therapeutic service for children and adults with horses being a vital part of the team. The horses and facilitators of the service have worked to provide over 3,000 child and adult sessions in the last year.
"The potential of the diversity and power of the equine industry needs to be recognised and we fully support the CLA in their efforts to promote the horse industry."
