Lexington, KY, November 18, 2012 – The Kentucky Horse Council (KHC) celebrated its 40th Anniversary as an organization at their Annual Meeting held at Shaker Village in Mercer County.

Past Presidents of KHC who attended the meeting included Mr. Bill Hilliard, President from 1995-1996, Ms. Judy Robin, President in 2000 and Ms. Anita Magan Oh, President in 2003.

The event was attended by over 65 members, which followed a morning trail ride on the Shaker Village property.  The day was a sunny crisp fall day, providing the perfect environment for both the trail ride and the visit to Shaker Village for the 40th anniversary.

Anna Zinkhon, KHC Board President, commented on the event, “The Kentucky Horse Council has been a steadfast supporter of our Kentucky horse industry for 40 years, and we could not have been as strong as we are now without the dedication of all past presidents and board members.  We owe them a debt of gratitude for all of their contributions since 1972.”

The day’s events, in addition to the trail ride, featured Dr. Mats Troeddson, Director of the Gluck Equine Research Center, discussing current equine research activities and the need for communications between researchers, veterinarians and horsemen; Ginny Grulke, Executive Director, reviewing the 2012 KHC activities and a horse industry update, and elections of new board members for 2013.  All enjoyed a 40th Anniversary cake.

KHC is now accepting memberships for 2013.  For a summary of 2012 activities and membership forms, visit www.kentuckyhorse.org
