Horsemen invited to caucus

-A A +A

The Kentucky Horse Council is hosting a Horsemen’s Caucus for all area horsemen at the Boyle County Extension Office at 6 p.m. on Aug. 22. The event is free to all horsemen and related equine businesses, and will offer a meal, presentations and discussion of area horse concerns and successes.
This Horsemen’s Caucus includes horsemen from Anderson, Boyle, Washington, Marion, Mercer, Garrard, and Lincoln counties.  Judge executives and state representatives from each of the areas have also been invited.
The results of the recent Kentucky Equine Survey will be distributed, including both the statewide figure and the estimates of horses by breed in each of the counties.  The horse council will review its 2013 programs and ask for input into future projects.  The evening will end with a question and answer session, with an open discussion of all in attendance.
The Kentucky Horse Council is an all-breed equine nonprofit dedicated, through education and leadership, to the protection and development of the Kentucky equine community.  It is an affiliate of the American Horse Council, and has programs for trails and trail riding, shows and events, horse health and welfare, youth and communications and information among horsemen. Membership includes a $1 million personal equine liability policy among other benefits.
Any horsemen interested in attending should register at:  www.kentuckyhorse.org/horsemens-regional-caucuses or call (859) 367-0509 to register over the phone.
The Kentucky Horse Council welcomes everyone involved with horses to an evening of good food, information and an opportunity to meet with other horsemen and the council.
