The Horse Hosts Free Foot and Mouth Seminar

The Horse magazine will conduct a free seminar for horse owners and industry professionals addressing EPM, West Nile, and Foot and Mouth disease concerns. The April 27 event at the Kentucky Horse Park Visitor's Information Center coincides with the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event at the same location. Speakers will include Dr. Bill Saville, of The Ohio State University, and Dr. Peter Timoney, of the Gluck Equine Research Center, in Lexington.

"There's a great deal of concern in the world about these particular diseases at the moment. We want to help educate the industry and the general public to the cause and effect so that people can take the proper precautions to reduce or avoid the spread," said Kim Graetz, editor of The Horse. "This is especially important here in Kentucky, the horse capital of the world. The Kentucky Horse Park is the perfect setting to address such alarming issues."

Representatives from various industry groups and pharmaceutical companies will be in attendance to answer questions from the audience after the official program, which runs from 5-7 p.m.
