Horse interested people in the Central Kentucky area will have an opportunity to determine if horse ownership is right for them through an informational seminar on November 5, 2009 at Brumfield Hay and Grain in Lexington. "So You Want to Own a Horse?" is offered by the Kentucky Horse Council (KHC) to provide insight into the time and financial responsibilities of horse ownership.
The November 5th class covers an overview of horse selection considerations, alternative options, general horse requirements, facilities, considerations when choosing horse professionals, and the importance of continuing education for the horse owner.  It will be conducted by Margi Stickney and Essie Rogers of the Kentucky Horse Council.
In addition to Kentucky Horse Council materials, attendees will receive educational literature from equine associations including information on hoof and veterinary care.
"Providing potential horse owners a snapshot of the unique needs of horses is a great way to promote responsible ownership," commented Madelyn Millard, KHC Board President. "Helping future owners learn to identify qualified resources and work with a network of professionals is just one of many ways that this course prepares attendees for the responsibilities involved in an equestrian lifestyle." 
The seminar is scheduled November 5, 2009 6:30 - 8:30 p.m. at Brumfield Hay and Grain on Maggard Drive in Lexington. It is free and open to the public, advance registration is required.
