“This law is very helpful for smaller horse farms that didn’t qualify for the same relief under the definition of ‘commercial horse boarding operation’ says Jacobowitz. “The new law will be of great help to those horse farms who continue to operate during this very difficult economic time. Commercial horse farms provide recreational, agricultural, and educational benefits to our communities. They have needed this kind of relief for a long time.”
