Extended Economic Model for the Horse Industry

Are the economic effects of the horse industry similar from region to region, and are there differences depending on the type of horse? These are the focus research questions for this specific CeTLer project.

Interviews and questionnaires will be used to collect new data that will serve in the estimation of demand.

The results can be directly incorporated into existing models of economic effects and BI-solutions for the horse industry. The project contributes to more detailed and accurate descriptions of the impact of the horse industry at various levels within the economy. It will also reveal the impact of different types of horse-related events and activities: horse racing, show jumping, leisure riding, Icelandic horse shows, etc. The findings will be disseminated by way of seminar presentations, conference sessions and two journal papers.
