KY Horse Park to Offer Free Gelding Clinic

The Kentucky Horse Park is offering free gelding surgeries (with a $20 registration fee) on Saturday, March 10.

The clinic, limited to 20 horses, is being provided by the Kentucky Horse Park in partnership with the Kentucky Horse Council’s Save Our Horses fund and the American Horse Council’s Unwanted Horse Coalition. Appointments are required and the registration form must be completed and fee paid by Feb. 24.

The free gelding surgeries are open to any equine owner who is financially unable to afford the surgeries, according to the Horse Park’s website, and the castrations will be performed by a veterinarian or a veterinary student under close supervision by a licensed veterinarian. Stallions must be halter broke, in good health, with two descended testicles, and be at least four months of age, with current Coggins and health certificate.
