Do you enjoy filling out surveys? I do! And if a survey is about horses? Jackpot!
I recently came across four horse-related surveys. Unfortunately, two of them closed before I could post about them. Whomp, whomp. But I am sharing the other two in case anyone else reading this is a serial survey taker too.
Neither of them are marketing surveys. Nobody is trying to sell you a product. Since I know blogs typically gets hits from all over the world, I will mention that:
Survey #1 is looking for USA respondents.
Survey #2 accepts respondents from anywhere in the world.
So if you are game, survey on!
This survey is from Heart of Phoenix, West Virginia’s largest horse rescue. They help horses in need throughout Appalachia. They also sponsor the yearly Appalachian Trainer Face Off and adoption event. They want to know how the current economic climate is impacting your horse ownership plans.
“Please share with ALL USA horse owners you know and ask they complete this short survey. Heart of Phoenix first circulated this survey last September when we began seeing an increase in owner surrender requests.
Since then, we have gathered last year’s results, and we are looking to compare the changes to the current situation we are all experiencing.
We, in a desire to be prepared for winter and 2023, want to gather data as to what are the main reasons owners are considering surrendering and what are things owners who are keeping their horses may be concerned about in the future.”- From A Recent Heart of Phoenix Blog Post
This survey is run by undergraduates at Purdue University in their Department of Agricultural Sciences Education and Communication under the supervision of Dr. Colleen Brady. The students want to assess perceptions of horse well-being.
“This study will assess what factors people think are most important when assessing horse well-being. This information will then be used to help develop educational materials to help people better understand aspects of horse well-being, and how to assess it.”- From the survey’s research information participation sheet

Thanks for sharing! I ended up doing the second survey – though I wish they’d had some other answer options to choose from. It was pretty fun to be able to share my thoughts!

I thought that survey was challenging too. But I also liked how much feedback they asked for. I agree it is fun to share thoughts on horse-related subjects!
