KENTUCKY HORSE COUNCIL ANNOUNCES

RECREATIONAL RIDER DAY

  
 

Lexington, KY (February 9, 2016) - The Kentucky Horse Council has announced its first Recreational Rider Day to be held April 2, 2016 at the University of Louisville Shelby Road campus from 10 am to 4 pm.

This program, presented by the University of Louisville Equine Program, is an educational and informational day in conjunction with a new and used tack sale.   Educational seminar topics include horse first aid basics, horse feed 101, equine degrees and job opportunities, camping with horses and more.  Educational seminars are approved for 4-H education credits.   There will also be informational booths for equine nonprofits, associations and organizations, as well as vendor booths with both new and used tack and other supplies.

"We are excited to announce this new program to benefit recreational riders in Kentucky," said Katy Ross, Kentucky Horse Council Executive Director. "We remain dedicated to the education of youth and horse owners in Kentucky and could not do it without the support of our members and sponsors."

The program is presented by the University of Louisville Equine Program with support from the University of Kentucky Ag Equine Programs.

The Recreational Rider Day still has informational booths available as well as vendor space.   For more information or to reserve vendor space, please contact info@kentuckyhorse.org.
