New health boss for American Horse Council


Adam Choate has joined the American Horse Council staff as the Director of Health and Regulatory Affairs. 

His responsibilities will include equine health issues, welfare issues, and state, federal and international requirements regarding the movement of horses.  He will be the principal AHC contact to the US Department of Agriculture.

“I am excited to apply the experience that I have working with state and federal legislation and regulations to the issues facing the horse industry today,” Choate said.

Choate graduated from the University of Mississippi in 2006, where he double-majored in History and Psychology.  In 2009, he earned his law degree from Mississippi College School of Law.  Before coming to Washington, Choate served as an attorney for the Mississippi Department of Human Services.  More recently, he worked as a legal fellow for US Senator Thad Cochran (R-MS).

“The AHC is fortunate to have Adam join the staff,” said AHC president Jay Hickey.  “We are working on several important disease and welfare issues and his background will be important in helping us address them.”
