I wanted to share this with horse owners and equine therapists alike so we could congradulate the Kentucky Horse Council on their 40th Anniversary!
“The Kentucky Horse Council, a statewide horse industry support group, is celebrating its 40th Anniversary in 2012.
Organized in 1972, the Kentucky Horse Council has evolved over time. Initially established as part of the state government, it was defunded during the recession of the 1980’s. The Horse Council then reformed as a private nonprofit association.
Many of today’s horse industry leaders, still active in executive positions in the equine industry, have been part of the Kentucky Horse Council board at one time. Anna Zinkhon, 2012 KHC board president, commented, “The Horse Council has benefited from the experience and wisdom of top notch horsemen over the years. This organization would not be what we are today without all of the direction and leadership from those who work with and love the horse.”
Today’s Kentucky Horse Council implements programs to support all horsemen and horses in the commonwealth. Top priority programs address the growth of horse ownership, support equine businesses, advocate for horsemen at the local and state level, and protect horses at risk. The Kentucky Horse Council also serves as an information resource for our signature industry, and provides communication and networking for industry participants.
“This is a milestone for the Kentucky Horse Council,” commented Ginny Grulke, executive director of KHC. “There are only a few other horse councils across the country which are so long-lived. The Board and staff are working to ensure that this anniversary is followed by another 40 years of Kentucky Horse Council programs and support.”
The anniversary will be celebrated at this year’s membership meeting in November.”
