Madelyn Millard, who manages the equine division at Waterwild Farm near Lexington, has been awarded this year's Van Ness Award for leadership and service to the horse community in Kentucky.
The Kentucky Horse Council said Jan. 12 it has modified its mission statement to offer a "more accurate reflection" of how its role in the equine community has evolved.
Students and adults who are interested in a career with horses are being given a chance to learn more about their educational opportunities in the equine field.
Indiscriminate breeding has widely been recognized as one contributing factor to the increasing numbers of unwanted horses. The Kentucky Horse Council is now offering incentives for responsible Kentucky horse owners to reduce the number of horses capable of reproduction through a geld voucher program.
Madelyn Millard, president of the Kentucky Horse Council board, welcomed three new members Aug. 6: Latonna Wilson, Dr. Doug Byars, and Kristin Hix.
