American Horse Publications Survey
Would you like your voice to be heard? Please consider taking this brief survey:
The purpose of this survey is to gauge participation trends and management practices in the U.S. equine industry. In addition, it seeks to gather information regarding the most important issues facing the industry.
This survey is being conducted for American Horse Publications (AHP). AHP is a nonprofit association that promotes excellence in equine media; members include equine-related publishing media, professionals, students, organizations, and businesses. Dr. C. Jill Stowe is providing consulting services for data collection and analysis to the AHP; Dr. Stowe is currently an associate professor of Agricultural Economics at the University of Kentucky. The survey is sponsored by Zoetis.
The Ten Mile Trail Project
Conceived by the Tewksbury Land Trust as a means to connect preserved lands and optimize their recreational value, the Ten Mile Trail project was initiated in 2017 with the help of the NJ Conservation Foundation. Since then, the two organizations have worked closely together to make this vision a reality in 2020.
With the acquisition of an additional parcel on Hell Mountain (which we are working closely with the Township on), as well as the construction of the trail on lands through four TLT preserves on Fox Hill, the Ten Mile Trail will soon be a reality. The County is also working with us to create a means to cross 517 that is safe for hikers, and of course, riders. The trail will also pass through existing easements on Hell Mountain, connect with Hell Mountain Preserve, and then link to NJCF’s Hill & Dale Preserve.
The NJCF, for its part, is working on acquiring a large tract that will allow the trail to connect with the County’s Cold Brook Preserve in Oldwick. As East meets West, the Tewksbury Land Trust and New Jersey Conservation Foundation will have to find a suitable place to drive in a “golden” spike – our Promontory, Utah -- linking the Ten Mile Trail into a unified network for the benefit of outdoor enthusiasts throughout the township.
