New York is located along the northeastern coast of the United States, home to approximately 20 million people. New York’s capital is Albany and the most populated city in the state is New York City, which is also the most populous city in the entire country. Its population even doubles that of the second most populated city, Los Angeles!
Many people immediately think of New York City when the state of New York comes to mind, leading to the false belief that New York wouldn’t be a suitable candidate for horse property or horse farms. However, in contrast with the crowded city life of New York City, the rest of the state of New York is actually filled with beautiful forests, rivers, lakes, and farms. Most would have no idea that the state has over 70,000 miles of rivers and streams! This makes it a perfect spot for horses and other outdoorsy activities.
The horse population in New York is over 202,000 and the horse industry in the state is valued at around $1.4 billion. 152,000 New Yorkers are actually a part of the equine life in the state, taking up jobs such as horse owners, service providers, or volunteers. This industry directly provides over 12,700 full time jobs.
