"We are excited to add such a diverse group of people from so many different equine backgrounds to our Board of Directors and to have such strong leadership as the result of our elections," said Kentucky Horse Council President Erin Woodall. "The skills of the new directors, combined with the experience and leadership of the returning board members, will benefit the Kentucky Horse Council immeasurably as we continue to expand our programming and focus on the health and welfare of horses in Kentucky."

Additionally, the Kentucky Horse Council announced new benefits for its members, including discounts to Horse Country tours. This discount is in addition to the excess liability insurance policy, National Thoroughbred Racing Association discount program, Equine Equipment Savings discount program, and discount to The Horse magazine, among others.

"We are proud of our ability to offer great benefits to all of our members, from individuals and families to businesses, farms, and associations,” said Executive Director Katy Ross said.” We are lucky to be able to add member discounts for Horse Country, the fast-growing organization offering tours to the amazing equine facilities in Central Kentucky including farms, feed mills and clinics. Working with Horse Country allows us one more way to develop the horse industry in Kentucky, which is a key component of the Horse Council’s mission."
