Help Fund Equine Research While Shopping with Horseman’s Card®

Lexington, KY (Dec 30, 2008) – Since its creation in 1991, The Horseman’s Card® has been the VISAŇ credit card of choice for horse owners and enthusiasts. It was created to help support the world-renowned Maxwell H. Gluck Equine Research Center in Lexington, KY. At no additional cost to the cardholder, a contribution is made to the Gluck Center each time The Horseman’s Card® is used to make a purchase.

Officials of the University of Kentucky's Department of Veterinary Science created the Gluck Center in 1987. It is one of only three centers in the world dedicated exclusively to researching the diseases and physiological problems of the horse. Critical research conducted at the Gluck Center is for the benefit of horses of all breeds. Scientific findings from the Gluck Center benefit people as well, including investigations into arthritis, aging and immune response, and bacterial and viral infections. Six of the top ten vaccines sold today are a result of the accomplishments of equine researchers at the Gluck Center.

In addition to raising funds for equine research, The Horseman’s Card® provides exclusive savings for cardholders through its VIP benefits program. With the holiday season quickly upon us, this is the perfect opportunity to give gifts to help support the health of the horse. A few of the Tack and Equipment companies involved in the VIP benefits program include:
