Economic impact of the Alabama horse industry

Although Alabama has nothing like the number of horses it did in the nineteenth century, the state’s equine industry is still massive.

With over 155,000 horses in the state, only around two percent are involved in racing.

The history of horses in Alabama

Horses arrived in Alabama with European settlers. They came from various parts of Europe and most likely included gaited horses, such as the Galloway, Hobby, and various Spanish breeds. Alabama was one of the states where horse racing was popular, particularly in the areas around Huntsville and Birmingham. Today, Birmingham hosts not only Thoroughbred but also Quarter Horse racing. The Alabama Stakes isn’t held in Alabama. However, it is named in honor of William Cottrell, a notable (and modest) Alabama horse breeder who didn’t want to put his own name to a race. As well as Thoroughbreds, gaited horses remained popular in this state, since their easy, comfortable paces were ideal for traveling. They became the horse of choice for plantation and farm work. One of the most popular gaited types was the Racking Horse. Their natural gait is the rack, a bi-lateral four-beat gait also known as single-foot. There is only one foot on the ground at any time. The breed derives from the Tennessee Walking Horse and became the official Alabama state breed in 1971. These horses are reliable, friendly, and hard-working. The McCurdy Horses are likewise hardy, gaited, and a great choice for versatile family horses. The McCurdy family has been breeding horses in Alabama for well over 150 years. and were also famous for their Standardbred horses, which were trotters.

The Alabama Open Horseman Association (AOHA) includes fourteen independent horse show associations. There are local associations for the best-known breeds. The headquarters of the Racking Horse Breeders of America Association is in Decatur, Alabama.
