When horses are a passion and a way of life, it's sometimes easy to forget that they're still a business.
At DDAF, we share your passion for the equine, and we understand the business of the horse--not just its accounting and tax rules. We help you take better care of your horse business, so you have more time to take care of your horses.
We have provided extensive accounting, tax, and business consulting services to the equine industry since 1979. Though we are located in Central Kentucky, known for its world-class horse farms, racing, and sales, clients from other parts of the country and even outside of the United States value our special knowledge of the equine industry. Each year, we publish the Thoroughbred Business Year in Review, an analysis of the industry that our clients see as a valuable resource.
Our clients are involved in variety of equine industry operations, including:
Accounting Services for the Equine Industry
The unique attributes of the equine industry demand accounting services with the particular depth of experience and expertise that DDAF delivers.
For some clients, we effectively serve as their farm office—directly performing many accounting, payroll, and clerical functions. Additionally, we provide financial statement assurance services—compilation, review, and audit—for the benefit of owners and when required by lenders.
Tax Services For The Equine Industry
When equine industry participants enlist DDAF to provide tax services, they can be confident that they are engaging a firm with in-depth industry experience and know-how. We are able to identify and implement tax planning strategies and to provide comfort that tax compliance responsibilities are being met.
We're interested in your business, know the industry, and can provide a wide range of valuable services designed to both optimize your tax savings opportunities and avoid unanticipated problems. Among our services are:
Credentials in the Equine Industry
Our Equine Industry Group meets periodically to enhance our knowledge about different aspects of the industry, often with outside industry experts as guests.

We welcome your inquiries about how we can put our experience and know-how to work to help you manage your farm and equine business.
