This meeting, presented by WesBanco, will discuss the various factors event organizers are taking into consideration when moving forward or canceling equine events during COVID-19. 
Due to recent event cancellations in Kentucky, this topic is being presented to give exhibitors and participants a glimpse into the decision-making process that event organizers and facility managers are using to determine whether or not to proceed with their horse shows during COVID19.  This virtual meeting will feature four panelists who will discuss various factors that impacted their decision and the public reaction to their choices. 

Anne Guillory, an attorney in the Louisville office of Dinsmore & Shohl, LLP, will discuss the legal issues an event organizer faces during a pandemic as well as the efficacy of waivers.   Jen Roytz, executive director of the Retired Racehorse Project, will discuss the factors that led to RRP deciding to cancel the Thoroughbred Makeover scheduled for October, 2020.   Justin Billings, Chief Show Officer of the American Quarter Horse Association, will discuss proceeding with the 2020 AQHYA World Show.  Nicole Rivera, Sales and Event Manager for the Kentucky Horse Park, will discuss the challenges the international venue faces hosting events during this time.  

A huge thank you to our sponsors Dinsmore & Shohl, Neogen, WesBanco, University of Louisville College of Business Equine Industry Program, K.E.S.M.A.R.C Kentucky and Equine Land Conservation Resource.
