July 28, 2013 — Ride Alert is proud to announce their latest partnership with another well-established and respected Equestrian organization–the Kansas Horse Council–helping to promote the safety of both horse and rider to their members through the Ride Alert 24/7 Emergency ID Service.
“No one wants to be involved in a horse riding accident, but unfortunately paramedics are called to riding accidents all too frequently each week. By joining Ride Alert you are allowing yourself to be identified quickly and for the emergency services to learn of any medical conditions or allergies that may affect your treatment. It also means your family can be informed as soon as you’re found rather than being left worried at home.
“Our Ambassador Kerry Kuhn is from Kansas, so arranging a partnership with the Kansas Horse Council made perfect sense to us” said Anita Hasbury-Snogles, Co-Founder, Ride Alert, USA. ” Not only does the KHC look after the interests of their members and their equines, but part of their remit is to promote the retention of trails in the state and help boost equine trourism through major events such as the Equifest of Kansas.”
Pattie Stalder of the Kansas Horse Council said, “The Kansas Horse Council is proud to be affiliated with Ride Alert, a company that recognizes the importance of safety for both horse and rider. Attaching a Ride Alert bridle tag to your horse’s halter when severe weather is forecast provides reassurance that you’ll be reunited with your horse in the event of a tragedy, such as the recent tornadoes in Moore, Oklahoma.”
Kerry Kuhn, a Clinician, TV show host and Ambassador for Ride Alert, said, “Ride Alert is something that we all are going to not want to be without. Being able to have access to valuable lifesaving information can be critical in the case of an accident. We all know how dangerous being around horses can be, so having the peace of mind for your kids and family that they (as well as yourself) are signed up with Ride Alert can be an incredible asset. I know I can’t protect my children from everything, but I can at least equip them with Ride Alert!”
Since its beginning in 1992, the Kansas Horse Council has worked to promote the equine industry in our state through representation, education and entertainment. We are a non-profit, member-driven organization. Each year we sponsor trail rides, an educational seminar, award scholarships, monitor legislation, publish “Equestrian Trails in Kansas,” manage the on-line resource for all things equine in and near Kansas (www.kansasequinedirectory.com) and host the largest three-day horse expo in this region, EquiFest of Kansas, http://equifestofks.com.
