July 21, 2013 -- Kentucky Round-Up is an annual event sponsored by the Kentucky Horse Council (KHC) that celebrates the magic of horses with live demonstrations, hands-on activities, and educational exhibits. KHC announced the addition of nationally known Craig Cameron as a featured clinician at Kentucky Round-Up 2014. The event will be held Feb. 15-16, 2014, at the Alltech Arena in the Kentucky Horse Park.
Cameron adds a level of excitement to the new two-day event by raising the bar on the quality of education and entertainment.
"We are so excited to have Craig Cameron come to Kentucky to share his unique skills and approach to horsemanship," said Anna Zinkhon, President of the Kentucky Horse Council. "We have committed to building the Kentucky Round-Up into a top-notch event, and the presence of Craig Cameron moves us a large step closer to that goal."
Cameron will be offering multiple clinics both on Saturday and Sunday, including some for the whole audience as well as some for individual paid participants.
In addition to Cameron's clinics, other new features will be added to the two-day Kentucky Round-Up, which started in February 2013 as a one-day event.
The Round-Up will continue to focus on youth involvement by offering a new Youth Congress. The Round-Up Youth Congress is open to youth nominated by horse associations that are members of the Kentucky Horse Council. Each association may send two youth members. The Congress will emphasize leadership and character training, and it also will feature a lunch talk by Cameron.
Additional information about Kentucky Round-Up will be released as details are confirmed. News about Kentucky Round-Up 2014 can be found at www.kentuckyroundup.com/news/.
