NAHMS Equine Studies

Last Modified: March 01, 2024

The next NAHMS equine study, tentatively planned for 2026, will provide important information about management practices used on U.S. equine operations and will take a national, in-depth look at the industry’s most pressing health issues.

NAHMS recently completed a needs assessment survey of equine stakeholders to gather input for the 2026 study. The survey will help identify the critical information needs regarding health and management practices used in the U.S. equine industry and ways to encourage equine owners to participate in the Equine 2026 study. We expect to publish results of the needs assessment survey in early summer 2024.

In addition, NAHMS conducted studies on health and management practices on U.S. equine operations in 2015, 2005, and 1998. NAHMS has also published epidemiological reports on EHV-1 and piroplasmosis.
