Share Horse Safety Tips to Win Tickets to WEG

Saddle Up SAFELY, a program began by University of Kentucky HealthCare and UK College of Agriculture Equine Initiative and now including more than 30 medical and equine-related organizations, is giving away prizes in exchange for horse riding safety tips. Such prizes include four tickets to the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games in September as well as many other horse-related items, and every person who submits a useful rider safety tip will be entered to win.

As the official medical provider for the WEG, UK HealthCare seeks to use Saddle Up SAFELY to "educate current and future riders about the simple steps that can be taken to prevent accidents," according to their website. This site is a part of a five-year safety campaign and features more than 180 safety ideas from injured riders.

To submit your own safety tips, go to by July 7 and enter your story.
