Horse Park Supporter to Speak at UK Distinguished Lecture Series

Nina Bonnie, accomplished equestrienne, Kentucky Horse Park Foundation creator, and a driving force behind the park, will speak at the University of Kentucky Equine Initiative Distinguished Industry Lecture Series. The event will take place April 1 in the Maxwell H. Gluck Equine Research Center auditorium on the UK campus beginning at 6:30 p.m. EDT. The lecture series is free to students and the general public.

"The Distinguished Industry Lecture Series is a signature program of the UK Equine Initiative. It is designed to showcase distinguished industry practitioners from the broad equine industry," said Nancy Cox, MS, PhD, associate dean for research of UK's College of Agriculture, Kentucky Agricultural Experiment Station director and administrative leader for the Equine Initiative. "While students, from UK and our higher education partners, are a primary audience, the program is also valuable for a variety of our stakeholders. We are very pleased to showcase the outstanding contributions of Nina Bonnie with this second lecture in the series."

UK's inaugural lecture featured Keeneland President Nick Nicholson in November 2009.

This second lecture series is sponsored by Equine Medical Associates, PSC. Cox credited Dan Rosenberg, Equine Initiative executive-in-residence, as instrumental in planning the event and providing guidance.
