November KENA Meeting Focuses on Equine Law

Many horse owners are familiar with protecting themselves and their assets with some type of liability insurance, but are you doing all you can? At the November 10 Kentucky Equine Networking Association (KENA) dinner meeting, Joel Turner, chair of the Frost Brown Todd Attorneys, LLC, equine law group, will discuss this topic.

The networking meeting begins at 6 p.m. with registration and a cash bar. The Keynote presentation on "How One Bad Horse Incident Can Put at Risk All You Own: How to Protect Yourself" with Turner begins following dinner at 7:30 p.m.

"Turner is involved in a full range of equine legal services; syndicate, co-ownership, partnership and limited liability company agreements, equine lending documentation, purchase and sale agreements, private and public placements, administrative hearings and appeals, gaming regulatory matters, tax and estate planning, and litigation," KENA relayed on their web site. "He is knowledgeable in racing legislation in the United States and is actively working with horsemen throughout the country to attend to the needs of breeders, owners, and trainers," the organization continued. "His knowledge of the horse industry allows him to handle legal problems within that industry efficiently and successfully."

A program of the Kentucky Horse Council and the UK Equine Initiative, KENA is an educational and networking dinner series for equine professionals in Kentucky, targeted specifically at those who participate in breeding and reproductive services, instruction, training, boarding, and showing.

The November 10 dinner begins with a cash bar and networking at 6 p.m. at the Lexington, Ky., Clarion Hotel. Cost to attend is $25 for the general public and $20 for KHC members, and the deadline for registration is November 7.
