AUTHOR/ADMINISTRATOR: By Zona Schneider
The American Shetland Pony Club and the American Miniature Horse Registry (ASPC/AMHR) attended the Kentucky Equine Youth Festival at the Kentucky Horse Park this past month to introduce their small equine to Kentucky youth.
Over 4,000 kids and their 4-H leaders flocked to Lexington from all over the state for an introduction to the eight equestrian disciplines that will be featured at the 2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games™ this fall.
ASPC/AMHR Director of Operations Zona Schneider and the ASPC/AMHR Registry Queen Ali Olander were on hand to answer questions about the small equine. Attendees were able to obtain the information about the national organization, youth membership forms, the 2010 Youth program and fun educational worksheets and buttons depicting small equines.
The ASPC/AMHR will return to Lexington for the 2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games™ September 25–October 10, to promote their breeds in the Equine Village and exhibit the versatility of the small equine in daily demonstrations.
