AUTHOR/ADMINISTRATOR: By Essie Rogers
Horse owners in Kentucky may attend informational sessions at no charge on November 14, 2009, as part of the Kentucky Horse Council (KHC) Annual Conference.
The conference features presentations and panels on topics appropriate for pleasure and show horse owners, association leaders, farm and business owners and horse-interested youth. Held in conjunction with "Your Future with Horses," an equine education fair, the conference has something for everyone.
"Our annual conference continues to grow and develop exponentially. Holding the conference in conjunction with Your Future with Horses is a great way for the Horse Council to expand our outreach to youth and horse-interested Kentuckians," emphasized KHC Board President Madelyn Millard.
The event kicks off at 9 a.m. with a keynote speaker and includes breakout seminars and planning sessions throughout the day. Special topics of interest include: updated deworming strategies, understanding supplements, developing an inexpensive website, getting your message out to the world, navigating tough times for associations.
At the conclusion of the conference sessions, a social hour with music provided by Shades of Grass, a local band led by Steve Norman, farrier, will be held, followed by the presentation of awards and the annual membership meeting. Information on KHC participation in the 2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games will be included in the membership meeting.
The 2009 KHC Annual Conference will be held November 14, 2009, at the Scott County High School in Georgetown, KY. For more information about the Annual Conference, visit www.kentuckyhorse.org
