Hats Off Day Announces Contributions to the Kentucky Equine Humane Center and Kentucky Horse Park FoundationÂ
Â Hats Off Day, Kentucky's day to celebrate the horse industry, is pleased to announce that thanks to the generosity of its sponsors and supporters, major contributions have been made to the Kentucky Horse Park Foundation and the Kentucky Equine Humane Center.Â
Dr. Tom Riddle of Rood & Riddle, the managing partner of Hats Off Day stated, "It's extremely gratifying to be part of an event that not only raises awareness of Kentucky's signature industry, but also financially supports two organizations that are vital to the success of the equine industry of our commonwealth."
Since 2003, Hats Off Day has raised more than $780,000 for charitable organizations in Kentucky.Â
"The Kentucky Equine Humane Center is very appreciative of the support we receive from Rood & Riddle. Hats Off Day is a great day for families and people of all ages to experience everything the Horse Park has to offer. The substantial donation from Rood & Riddle and all of the Hats Off Day sponsors make a true difference in the lives of the horses that we rehabilitate, train and eventually adopt out to new homes," said Karen Gustin, executive director of the Kentucky Equine Humane Center.Â
Hats Off Day is sponsored by many of the leaders of the commonwealths horse and business community, including major sponsors Rood & Riddle, Central Bank, and Zoetis.Â
Laura Klumb, executive director of the Kentucky Horse Park Foundation said, "The generous donation made through Hats Off Day will have a tremendous impact on the Kentucky Horse Park and we cannot be more grateful to be named a charitable beneficiary of this wonderful event. Our deepest thanks to Rood & Riddle, Central Bank, Zoetis, and all of the other sponsors that supported Hats Off Day in 2015."
Â Hats Off Day is one of the many ways Rood & Riddle supports Kentuckys equine industry. Through veterinary service, educational opportunities and seminars, and community support, Rood & Riddle impacts the entire state with initiatives that strengthen the equine industry.Â
