Kentucky Horse Council Hosts June Dinner and Discussion: Overwhelmed by Insurance Options?

Learn how to Protect Your Horse, Your Stuff and Yourself

Ever wondered if you really need insurance on your horse or if you need to tell your homeowner’s insurance about the two old ponies in the backyard? Do you need special coverage for your trailer and tack that live at a boarding barn? If you travel to teach lessons, but don’t ride at other farms, are you covered? Let the Kentucky Horse Council (KHC) demystify these questions and others involving equine and farm insurance, and get your personal questions answered by experts!

On Tuesday, June 14, the Kentucky Equine Networking Association (KENA) dinner and panel discussion will address a variety of insurance issues horse and farm owners might face. Titled “Overwhelmed by Insurance Options?” the event will be held from 5:30 to 8:00 p.m. at The Grand Reserve in Lexington. KENA is a dinner and educational series geared toward equine professionals, horse owners and riders, and other equine enthusiasts.

The night will include networking, dinner and a panel discussion from a variety of equine, farm and home insurance experts, including Kentucky Farm Bureau’s Micah Campbell, agency manager; Rokstone Agriculture Risks Underwriting’s Nicole Pidcoe, head of agriculture claims, and Alexandra Choumitsky, senior underwriter; and Sterling Thompson Company’s Katie Davis, equine insurance account manager, and Matt Delehanty, mortality insurance team leader.

“Education and protection of the Kentucky equine community are core principles of the KHC,” says Dr. Fernanda Camargo, associate professor and equine extension specialist in the University of Kentucky College of Agriculture, Food and Environment’s Department of Animal and Food Sciences and co-chair of the KENA committee. “We feel that this topic is essential to horse owners and those who are involved with horses in any way–professionally or personally. Insurance can be overwhelming and easy to dismiss, but it’s imperative that we do our best to protect our animals, our livelihoods and ourselves. The KHC is excited to have this panel of specialists distill down an overwhelming topic into bite-sized, easy-to-digest pieces. We expect that the ability to ask specific questions will be very helpful.”

This dinner is part of the Horse Council’s Kentucky Equine Networking Association (KENA) dinner series.

KENA provides an educational and social venue for equine professionals and horse enthusiasts from all breeds and disciplines to share ideas, business strategies and knowledge; and to obtain up-to-date information on horse and farm management, as well as on issues affecting the equine industry. KENA is made possible by the generous support of the Equine Land Conservation Resource, Excel Equine, Lexington Equine Medical Group, Rood and Riddle Equine Hospital and the University of Louisville Equine Industry Program.
