“Korea Horse Industry Council (KHIC) is committed to promoting the development of Korean equine market and we are looking for more cooperation globally.

We are looking forward to bringing more new blood to this traditional industry.” Said Ms. Jang Mi Kyung, founder and president of KHIC.
“Korea is a big market with over 800,000 Koreans who experienced horseback riding, including 18,000 who took a therapeutic ride. These are exciting numbers.” Said Brian Tse, founder of RacingLand, “We are very honored to have KHIC to be our strategy partner. With KHIC’s local resources and experience, and RacingLand’s advanced technology support and business model, we are ready to make more waves in the Korean equine market.”
Further development of the thoroughbred racing industry in Korea generates increased demand for quality genetics. In addition, the emerging recreational horseback riding industry in Korea generates new niche opportunities for equine market participants. Among the breeding farms, 479 were also operating recreational horseback riding businesses, serving 47,000 regular riders in the country.
“Here in RacingLand, this multi-functional horse racing platform built with the blockchain technology provides services such as Horse Racing Media, Racing Ownership, Horse Exchange, Racing Game.
