Lexington, KY (April 12, 2017) – The Kentucky Horse Council has announced the topic for the May Kentucky Equine Networking Association (KENA) dinner: Saving Ground – Preserving KY’s Horse Country. The dinner, presented by the Equine Law Group of Dinsmore & Shohl LLP, will be held on May 16, 2017, at Fasig-Tipton in Lexington, Ky. KENA is a dinner and educational series open to equine professionals, horse owners, and recreational riders and will feature a networking reception from 5:30-6:00 PM, followed by dinner with the main speakers from 6-8 PM.

The group, focused on the Kentucky thoroughbred, sport, and pleasure horse community, is charged with the mission of providing an educational and social venue for equine professionals and horse enthusiasts from all disciplines. KENA, which is organized by the Kentucky Horse Council and supported by the University of Kentucky Ag Equine Program, provides the opportunity for attendees to share ideas, business strategies and knowledge, and to obtain up-to-date information on horse and farm management.

May’s speakers will be Holley Groshek, Executive Director of the Equine Land Conservation Resource, Susan Speckert, Executive Director of the Fayette Alliance, and Roy Cornett, currently serving as the Treasurer of the Back Country Horsemen of America. The panelists will speak on the importance of land conservation to the equine industry, in terms of farmland, competition venues and access to trails, as well as steps individuals can take to help protect Kentucky’s equine lands.

“The issue of protecting Kentucky’s farm land is important to every member of the Kentucky horse industry, whether you are a trail rider, breeder, or sport horse competitor,” says Kentucky Horse Council Executive Director Katy Ross. “We are thrilled to have a panel with three distinct perspectives on this issue and that will touch all of our membership.”

The May 16 dinner is presented by Dinsmore & Shohl LLP’s Equine Law Group. Dinsmore & Shohl is a full-service law firm with offices in twenty-nine cities throughout nine states and the District of Columbia, including Kentucky offices in Lexington, Frankfort, and Louisville. The Dinsmore Equine Law Group is a generous supporter of the KENA dinner series.

The Kentucky Equine Networking Association welcomes all Kentucky horse owners, professionals and enthusiasts to attend the May 16 event. For details and reservations, visit www.kentuckyhorse.org.
