The Horse To Be Official Sponsor Of Inaugural 'NEET' Symposium

The Horse: Your Guide To Equine Health Care will be the official media sponsor for the Inaugural National Expo on Equine Transportation (NEET) Symposium to be held March 10-11, 2001 at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington.

NEET, sponsored by the Kentucky Horse Council, will focus on the challenges of moving horses from place to place, and will include numerous seminars, clinics, and competitions including a clinic on emergency and disaster preparedness. Other seminars include selecting the right trailer, air and ground shipping, and safety and health requirements. Throughout the event weekend, NEET will challenge competitive horse enthusiasts by hosting several contests, such as driving obstacle courses, loading and unloading horses, and the NEET Championship Trail Class.

"With the incredible innovations and advances in knowledge in equine transportation, we thought it imperative to bring horse owners and the transportation experts together for the first ever summit on equine transportation," remarked Kim Graetz, editor of The Horse. "Whether you drive your own two-horse trailer, or ship with a commercial hauler, NEET has something to offer that you can take home and use to the benefit of your horse, and yourself."
