WEST CHESTER (June 22, 2018) –  The Pennsylvania Horse Breeders Association (PHBA) recently honored state Senator Andy Dinniman for his work in the state legislature on behalf of the equine industry.

Dinniman received a legislative award from the PHBA at its 2018 Award Banquet at the Hotel Hershey earlier this month.

“Horses, horse breeding, equine agriculture, activities, and sport make up a tremendous and irreplaceable part of Chester County’s heritage and our economy. In fact, our region probably has nearly as many – if not more – horses than we do people,” Dinniman, who serves on the Senate Agriculture Committee, said. “I want to thank PHBA for this honor and for its ongoing efforts on behalf of the industry as we continue to work together to keep horse breeding and equine agriculture growing strong in Pennsylvania.”

Dinniman, who serves on the Senate Agriculture and Rural Affairs Committee, recently supported the efforts of Delaware Valley University and the Chester Delaware County Farm Bureau in conducting a study entitled, “Contributions of the Equine Industry to the Economy of Southeastern Pennsylvania.”

The study found that the equine industry spends $546 million annually on goods, services, wages, and salaries in Southeastern Pennsylvania. The impact of this spending generates $670 million to the regional gross domestic product, supports more than 6,550 jobs, provides almost $160 million in annual payroll, and generates $58 million in tax revenue.
