« Return to News

– Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital will host “Rood & Riddle Responds”, an educational seminar for people engaged in the equine industry, on Tuesday, October 12, 2021, at Embassy Suites in Lexington. This is the first year the seminar has been held in the fall, as we skipped the late winter date earlier this year because of Covid. We encourage attendees to wear masks, although there are no requirements. We plan to live-stream the seminar on Rood and Riddle's Facebook page and YouTube Channel for those who cannot attend or would prefer to stay home.


In its thirty-sixth year, the Rood & Riddle Client Education Seminar will continue with the question-and-answer format. 

Questions submitted by clients and veterinarians before the seminar are assigned to one of the experts at Rood & Riddle to answer. This year's panel will include:

  • A surgeon.
  • An internal medicine expert.
  • A reproduction specialist.
  • A breeding farm practitioner.


This year we will also have Dr. Lutz Goehring, who is the Warren Wright, Sr. – Lucille Wright Markey Endowed Chair in Equine Infectious Diseases at the University of Kentucky's Gluck Equine Research Center. Goehring's background is in research, scholarly journals, refereed book chapters, advising, mentoring, and service. His research expertise has been on equine herpesvirus type 1 (EHV1). He is a specialist in equine internal medicine and a member of the European College of Equine Internal medicine.


"Rood & Riddle is pleased to sponsor once again a continuing education program for our many interested clients and friends," said Dr. Tom Riddle of Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital. "The question-and-answer format has been extremely successful, so we are excited to continue with that this year."    


In addition to Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital and Rood & Riddle Veterinary Pharmacy, this year's sponsors will include Boehringer Ingelheim, Hallway Feeds, Neogen, Platinum Performance, and Zoetis. There will also be tables for questions for the University of Kentucky Pasture Management program, the Kentucky Horse Council, and Blue Grass Farms Charities.


Refreshments will be served from 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. in the spacious lower atrium, followed by the question-and-answer session running from 6:00 p.m. to 8 p.m. RSVPs to the event (not required, but helpful) by Monday, October 11, 2021, at 3 p.m. to or via phone to (859) 280-3316.
