Potential NJ License Plate Appeals To Equine Enthusiasts

A new license plate representing New Jersey’s state animal, the horse, is in the works if Assemblyman Kevin Rooney has his way. Available for a $50 application fee with a $10 renewal, the funds raised from the plate purchase would support therapeutic riding programs in the Garden State.

Therapeutic riding uses horses to assist people with mental or physical disabilities, promoting well-being and increases in self-esteem and self-confidence. Individuals who ride typically show improvements in balance, coordination and muscle tone. Equine-assisted therapies can help people with a range of issues, including Down syndrome, learning disabilities, muscular dystrophy, brain injuries, trauma and more.

Rooney emphasized that plate production is not paid for with state funds; it’s paid for with the purchasing fees. Rooney notes that there is one horse for every 323 people in the state, so he anticipates that the plate will be popular among equine enthusiasts.
