By the time you read this, I will be en route to the Horse Capital of the World to attend Equitana USA. Stay tuned for more, directly from the event!
As I type, I am getting ready to drive down to Kentucky for the first Equitana USA trade fair and exhibition, happening this weekend, October 1-3. Equitana is a bit of a multi-purpose trip for me: it’s a great opportunity to meet our sponsors in person, maybe meet some new ones, and get my feet wet with in some event coverage (spoiler alert: Horse Nation will be looking to add some event coverage to its repertoire). Eventing Nation’s editor, Sally Spickard, is meeting me in Kentucky this week and we’re looking forward to experiencing Equitana and all of its jam-packed schedule.

One session I’m particularly keen to check out is the “Closing The Gap” panel, featuring Nicole Byrd of Detroit Horse Power, Patricia Kelly of Ebony Horsewomen, and Dr. Anastasia Curwood of Strides for Equality Equestrians. The session will be held on Saturday, October 2 at 2:45 pm on the Shadowfax Main Stage at Kentucky Horse Park. Click here to view more about the panel and here to purchase your tickets.
I’m looking forward to reporting on all the happenings once in Kentucky, so stay tuned!
