Horses in Michigan

The economic impact of the Michigan state horse industry

The American Horse Council’s most recent statistics, dating to 2017, reveal how healthy the horse economy is in Michigan. With 188,865 horses in the state, Michigan ranks twelfth overall in the USA. This is reflected in the fact that nearly one third of Michigan households (30.5% or 1.2 million) include people who are horse fans. In total, the state’s internal horse activities contribute $1.6 billion to Michigan’s economy. This includes 30,739 jobs, divided between the competition, racing, leisure, therapy, and equine rescue sectors. The biggest sector of all is the competition sector, which contributes 11,942 jobs totaling $591 million, and a total economic impact of $1 billion. When tourism spending and other factors are considered, the impact of Michigan’s horse economy is a massive $2.6 billion. The Traverse City Horse Shows in Northern Michigan directly benefit the local economy to the sum of $120 million.

The history of horses in Michigan

Horses have always played an important part in Michigan’s economy and culture. Horses were essential in developing the state’s agriculture, logging, and other industries. Prior to this, they were used for land exploration and transport. Racing, especially trotting, became very popular. By the late nineteenth century, draft horse breeds were essential to agriculture and industry. The Michigan Agriculture College instituted a draft breeding center in 1907, focusing on Clydesdales and Percherons. When the College became the Michigan State University, its interest in horses continued with the establishment of one of America’s earliest and most important Arabian horse breeding programs.

Mackinac Island

Mackinac Island in Michigan offers a unique experience for both visitors and horse people. This island instituted a ban on “dangerous horseless carriages” in 1898 and it’s still in place today! No one is allowed to take an automobile to this popular tourist destination, though there are emergency vehicles on the island. Instead, Mackinac Island’s circular highway is open only to pedestrians, cyclists, and horse-drawn vehicles. The horse-drawn carriages are popular with tourists and locals. The Mackinac Community Equestrian Center's permanent exhibit, The Mackinac Horse in History Museum, celebrates the unusual equine culture of the island.

Horse associations in Michigan

It’s perhaps not surprising that the Mackinac Horsemen’s Association is very active, given the island’s history and traditions. The MHA actively promotes equestrianism and supports the carriage driving industry. They offer shows, training, cowboy cookouts, Pony Camps, and 4-H Horse Club activities. The Michigan Draft Horse Breeders Association (MDHBA) supports the draft industry through events and fund-raising. It is one of the major supporters of the Michigan Great Lakes International Draft Horse Show and Pull (MGLI), one of the USA’s premier events for drafts and mules. Michigan State University’s prestigious Arabian horse breeding program is one of the most important in America. MSU is also an outstanding training center for horse care and management.

Most famous horses in Michigan

Peter the Great, born in 1895, was one of Michigan’s most celebrated horses. He was owned by Kalamazoo businessman Daniel D. Streeter. Peter the Great put in an outstanding performance against the best horses of the day at the Kentucky Futurity. This event was widely recognized as the leading trotting race in the USA. The young horse came a close second after the favorite. Pretty soon, the “colt from Kalamazoo” was a popular winner and sire of other successful trotters. The stallion, Amidore, also plays an important part in Michigan history. In 1932, W.K. Kellogg gave him to Michigan State University, thus establishing the internationally-famous Arabian horse breeding program.
