Kentucky Horse Owner Education DVD Wins Award

HorseSmarts: Essential Advice for Today's Horse Owner, a 60 minute educational DVD created by the Kentucky Horse Council (KHC) and produced by Marvo Entertainment Group of Princeton, Ky., was recently awarded a 2009 Silver Communicator Award of Distinction by the International Academy of Visual Arts and the Communicator Awards.

The Communicator Awards recognize creative excellence for communications professionals. HorseSmarts was submitted for the award by Marvo Entertainment Group after the completion of edits in April.

In a letter announcing the award, Linda Day, executive director of the International Academy of Visual Arts wrote, "The 2009 Communicator Awards featured an incredible pool of over 7,000 entries, making it the largest and most prestigious award of its kind. Being honored with a Communicator Award is a remarkable accomplishment and a testament to the world with the Communicator statuette serving as a lasting symbol of communication excellence."

HorseSmarts began airing on all PBS affiliates of KET May 1, 2009.

"The Kentucky Horse Council has an amazing partnership with Marvo Entertainment Group and we applaud their creative work," remarked KHC Board President Madelyn Millard. "While we provided the content of HorseSmarts, the staff at Marvo truly engineered the footage to greatness as this award attests."
