Recreational Rider Day

Lexington, KY (March 3, 2017) – The Kentucky Horse Council has announced its second Recreational Rider Day of the year and its first to be held at the Boyd County Fairgrounds on March 11, 2017 from 9 am to 4 pm.

This program is an educational and informational day in conjunction with a vendor fair. Educational seminar topics include horse first aid basics, horse feed 101, pasture management, trailer safety, and more. Educational seminars are approved for 4-H education credits and may qualify for Certified Horsemanship Association continuing education credits. There will also be informational booths for equine nonprofits, associations and organizations, as well as vendor booths with tack and other supplies.

“We are excited to host this successful program in a second venue. Our Recreational Rider Days have received such overwhelming feedback and support in Louisville, we are thrilled to be able to offer this program at the other end of the Commonwealth.” said Katy Ross, Kentucky Horse Council Executive Director. “The Boyd County Fairgrounds provides a unique facility that allows us to have educational and hands on workshops. 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.”

Admission is $5 cash at the door. Children under 5 are free.

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.
