This legislation will not only provide sufficient purse monies to make the Texas horse racing industry competitive with surrounding states that have expanded gaming at racetracks, but will provide substantial revenues for the Texas Performance Horse Development Fund (PHDF) which will provide funds to support horse shows, youth horse activities, rodeos, recreation opportunities, trail rides and other events for the Texas horse enthusiasts.

Texas HORSE has been recognized as the collective voice of, and an effective advocate for the Texas Horse Industry in matters pertaining to economic advancement. Texas HORSE provides leadership and resources for the benefit of the Texas horse industry with the goal of improving its economic viability through opportunities for Texas-based horse organizations to work together to achieve this goal. Texas HORSE is a 501(c)(6) not-for-profit corporations comprised of the following Texas horse associations: AQHA, APHA, NCHA, TTA, TQHA, Texas Horsemen’s Partnership, Texas Arabian Breeders Association and the Texas Paint Horse Breeders Association.
