University of Kentucky HealthCare, in partnership with UK colleges of Public Health and Agriculture, Food and Environment and in conjunction with close to 50 community, equine and medical organizations, has released two new educational booklets within the Saddle Up Safely educational partnership.

“Trailering Your Horse Safely” and “Travel to a New Environment” cover topics including choosing a trailer, preparing a horse for a trip, information for time in transit, horse behavior away from home, overcoming horse fears and equine safety resources.

Plants still yet to be topped and those recently topped are at the greatest risk of infection.

In Madison County, UK Cooperative Extension will host the 2014 Grandparents as Parents Conference from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sept. 3 at the extension office, 230 Duncannon Lane, Richmond.
