Equestrian Events, Inc: Giving Back

Posted in 2010 Games, Equestrian Events Inc, World Equestrian Games at 9:52 pm by Thomas

I wanted to put out the word on the wonderful programs that Equestrian Events, Inc. (EEI) supports here in Kentucky and abroad.  For those that don’t know, EEI is the organization that produces the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event Presented by Bridgestone.  EEI which itself is a non-profit, charitable organization makes donations to other charitable organizations, among that list for 2011,

Kentucky Children’s Hospital – $15,000,  primary for 2011.

Others supported during the year,

Central Kentucky Riding for Hope (CKRH)

Equine Land Conservation Resource (ELCR)

Midway College

Boyd Martin Fire Relief

University of Kentucky Equestrian Team Fund

The Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event is a great event, and I highly recommend people to get out to it if they have the opportunity.  Certainly the efforts that EEI has put forth over the years in making The Rolex Kentucky such a success laid the ground work for the World Equestrian Games to come to Kentucky, so my hat’s off to them.
