WEG's official vets to start this year

February 5, 2009

Kentucky's Rood and Riddle Equine Hospital will provide veterinary services for the 2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games as well as the lead-up test events.

The test events, which are each called the Kentucky Cup, will allow Games organisers to prepare for the world championships in 2010.

The Lexington-based practice is a full-service equine hospital established in 1986 as a referral center for horses requiring specialized medical and surgical care. The hospital facility offers a full range of services including surgery, internal medicine, advanced diagnostic imaging, a focused Podiatry Center and a specialized Reproductive Center. The practice also provides ambulatory services (on-site care) for breeding farms, sport horse facilities, horse shows and events, with a variety of services, including emergency and preventative care, general reproduction, lameness, radiography, podiatry, and internal medicine.

The competitions will begin this year and run through the 2010 Rolex Three-Day Event. All events will be held at the Kentucky Horse Park.
