The Virginia Agricultural Statistics Service took an survey of equine industry in 2001.  For more interesting information click on Equine Survey Report.  They reported:

  • Powhatan has 2100 horses at a total value of $17,457,000

  • Powhatan ranks 6th in Central District for number of horses.  Central Virginia includes the counties of Albemarle, Amelia, Amherst, Appomattox, Bedford, Buckingham, Campbell, Caroline, Chesterfield, Cumberland, Fluvanna, Goochland, Greene, Hanover, Henrico, Louisa, Nelson, Orange, Powhatan, Prince Edward, and Spotsylvania.

  • Total inventory of horses in Central Virginia is 37,900 with an average value of $8,661 per horse.

According to the US Government Census report there were 23,425 persons living in Powhatan in 2001.  This makes an average of 1 horse for every 11.16 people.    This figure was obtained by combining facts from http://quickfacts.census.gov/qfd/ (2001 US Government Census by county) and Virginia Agricultural Statistics Equine survey report-2001).  This ranks us 11th in the state for the number of horses per capita.
