AAEP and USDF to Promote Horse Health as Alliance Partners

The American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP), the world's largest

professional association of equine veterinarians, is pleased to announce the

addition of the U.S. Dressage Federation (USDF) to its Alliance Partner

Program. Through this alliance the two organizations will educate horse

owners about quality equine health care.

"The USDF and the AAEP are committed to the advancement and education of

their respective memberships for the benefit of the horse, " said Dr.

Douglas G. Corey, AAEP president. "Because many AAEP members are involved

in the hands-on care of dressage horses, our partnership with the USDF is a

natural extension of the veterinary care that is already provided on an

individual basis."

Founded in 1973, the United States Dressage Federation, headquartered at the

Kentucky Horse Park, has more than 33,000 members and 129 nationwide

affiliate organizations. USDF was established for the purpose of promoting

and encouraging a high standard of accomplishment in dressage throughout the

United States, primarily through educational programs.

The partnership will focus on the presentation of equine health information

to USDF members through their own magazine, USDF Connection, their Web site

http://www.usdf.org, as well as through veterinary speakers at the Adequan/USDF

National Convention and Symposium.

The USDF joins the American Quarter Horse Association, U.S. Equestrian

Federation, Inc., Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders Association and the

Arabian Horse Association as AAEP Alliance Partners.

The American Association of Equine Practitioners, headquartered in

Lexington, Ky., was founded in 1954 as a non-profit organization dedicated

to the health and welfare of the horse. Currently, the AAEP reaches more

than 5 million horse owners through its nearly 9,000 members worldwide and

is actively involved in ethics issues, practice management, research and

continuing education in the equine veterinary profession and horse industry.
