“Management of Horses on Spring Pasture” at Upcoming KENA Meeting

May 12th, 2011 11:23 AM | No Comments

The Kentucky Equine Networking Association (KENA) hosts regular meetings which offer a social hour with cash bar and dinner (responsibility of the attendee) where qualified guest speakers present on topics of current interest in the areas of horse health, nutrition, facilities management, labor, safety, welfare, sales, marketing & business management, among others.

We invite you to join us to meet and greet other horse professionals. Bring your calling cards to pass out and collect!  KENA is not a membership organization, it is an informal gathering of equine professionals for the purposes of education, networking and business development.  During its May meeting, KENA will welcome special guest; Mayor Jim Gray.  Our Breed Highlight will be Dressage, to be presented by Reese Koffler-Stanfield of Lexington.
