2018 Study looks to understand impact of equine economy in South Carolina: American Horse Council study finds that the U.S. equine industry is responsible for about $122 billion in economic impact and 1.74 million jobs on a full-time basis, that generate $79 billion in total salaries, wages, and benefits. How much of that is felt in South Carolina? The last statewide study of South Carolina’s equine sector was conducted in 2004, so the new study will play an important role in showing how much the industry has grown and how much it means to the state in 2018. In Florida, for example, the equine economic impact has risen by 33% in the last decade.
