ASHA Annual Awards Luncheon



   

The ASHA Awards luncheon featured two dramatic speakers. Tandy Patrick, chairman of the Kentucky Horse Park and Jim Host, chairman of the 2010 World Equestrian Games, addressed the audience to discuss the upcoming World Equestrian Games to be held at the Kentucky Horse Park in 2010. This is the largest single sporting event to come to the Southeastern United States. It will feature seven equestrian events and officials expect 500-600 thousand people to attend, 40% of those visiting from outside the United States. This is the first time the games have been held within the United States.
