Thorturf announces Partnership with the Kentucky Horse Park

SANDUSKY, Ohio—March 5, 2009—ThorTurf Equestrian Surfaces has partnered with The Kentucky Horse Park to provide footing for the park’s Breeds Ring, the organization announced on Thursday.

ThorTurf is the ultimate in dustless footing, an all-climate, low-maintenance surface that affords optimum durability and equine safety.

“The Kentucky Horse Park is thrilled to partner with ThorTurf,” said Kathy Hopkins, Director of Equine Operations at The Kentucky Horse Park. “The benefits of this new, state-of-the-art footing are many. I believe it’s the only surface that is bio-mechanically balanced to benefit the equine athlete. We show many different disciplines in the Breeds Ring, and the ShowTurf footing will satisfy our needs in that area. The footing is dust-free and doesn’t require watering or much dragging, and that provides an all-important labor savings for us. The color of the surface is beneficial to riders and the audience, because it doesn’t cause glare. I’m excited to open our 2009 season with this new surface in place.”

The Kentucky Horse Park is a working horse farm and educational theme park dedicated to man’s relationship with the horse. One of Kentucky’s most-popular tourist attractions, it is situated on more than 1,200 beautiful acres in the heart of the state’s famous Bluegrass Region. The Kentucky Horse Park is the home of the 2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games, the largest equine sporting event ever held in the U.S. It will be the first time the event has been held outside of Europe.

“I am excited about our partnership with The Kentucky Horse Park,” said Lori Douglass of ThorTurf. “It’s an honor for us to be part of such a prestigious partnership, and our ThorTurf team is looking forward to an exciting future with The Kentucky Horse Park. We appreciate their commitment to our new dustless arena footing, and are confident they’ll be very happy with our surface.”
