University of Kentucky (UK) Ag Equine Programs held its second Equine Summit, which focused on developing tomorrow’s workforce, on April 26 at Spindletop Hall, in Lexington.

Nearly 100 people, including representatives from five academic institutions across three countries, attended the sessions over the course of the day. Faculty and staff from UK listened as invited panelists offered insights on how UK’s educational programs contribute to developing a relevant workforce and engaged in roundtable discussions identifying current industry needs and future trends. The National Thoroughbred Racing Association (NTRA) and the North American Equine Ranching Information Council (NAERIC) sponsored the event.

The summit brought together a cross-section of equine industry leaders, recruiters, and others representing a broad range of organizations. The summit represents a philosophy of collaboration between the UK College of Agriculture, Food and Environment and key industry leaders to identify new initiatives, strengthen existing programs, and advance student professionalism and preparation to join the equine workforce.
