Kentucky Horse Council Announces AUGUST KENA TOPIC: Handling Heat 

he Kentucky Horse Council has announced the topic for the August Kentucky Equine Networking Association (KENA) dinner. The August topic will be "Handling Heat." The dinner will be held on August 20, 2019, at The Red Mile Clubhouse in Lexington, Ky. KENA is a dinner and educational series open to equine professionals, horse owners, and riders and will feature a networking reception from 5:30-6:00 PM, followed by dinner with the main speakers from 6:00-8:00 PM.

As we reach the middle of a hot summer, the August KENA topic will be "Handling Heat."  The speakers for this dinner will be Dr. Robert Coleman, Nicole Bianco, and a veterinarian.

Dr. Coleman, an extension specialist and professor in the University of Kentucky's Equine Ag Program, will discuss how to reduce heat stress for horses.  Nicole Bianco, a registered dietician at the University of Kentucky, will discuss best practices for riders and a veterinarian will discuss conditioning and hydration for horses.

"We are having a very hot summer," says Kentucky Horse Council Executive Director Katy Ross.  "This does not slow down the show season or temper our desire to ride or go out on the trails.  This diverse panel will touch on all of the issues affecting equine and human athletes in Kentucky due to this heat and humidity."

KENA is charged with the mission of providing an educational and social venue for equine professionals and horse enthusiasts from all disciplines. Organized by the Kentucky Horse Council and supported by the University of Kentucky Ag Equine Program, KENA provides the opportunity for attendees to share ideas, business strategies and knowledge, and to obtain up-to-date information on horse and farm management and on issues affecting the equine industry.

The Kentucky Equine Networking Association welcomes all Kentucky horse owners, professionals and enthusiasts to attend the August 20th event. For details and reservations, visit . Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 at the door.
