World Games 2010 Foundation Selects Equine Relations and Special Projects Coordinator

LEXINGTON, KY— The World Games 2010 Foundation today announced that Ms. Maggie Daniels has been selected as Equine Relations and Special Projects Coordinator for the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games.

As coordinator, Ms. Daniels will work closely with the many equine industry organizations interested in participating in the 2010 Games on various levels. She will assist with special events and projects related to equestrian events and equine organizations, and will work to build relationships with equestrian teams and equestrian clubs and colleges and universities.

“It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity to be a part of such an incredible event,” said Daniels. “I’ve been fortunate enough to be a to be a part of the Games from the beginning as an intern, and it is so exciting to help this event grow and take shape as we get closer to 2010. I am honored to have this opportunity to promote not only the United States, but Kentucky as the horse capital of the world.”

A native of Charleston, West Virginia, Ms. Daniels is a 2008 graduate of Georgetown College, with a B.A. in Communications and media studies. While at Georgetown, Ms. Daniels was a President’s Ambassador and completed the college’s Equine Scholars Program, and interned at the World Games 2010 Foundation from 2006 until May 2008. Ms. Daniels is also an active equestrian, competing in hunt-seat equitation.

“Maggie’s knowledge of the Games from her experience as an intern for two years, as well as her personal knowledge of the equestrian community, makes her an excellent contributor to our staff,” said Holley Groshek, Director of Administration for the World Games 2010 Foundation.

The Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games, to be held at the Kentucky Horse Park September 25-October 10, 2010, are the world championships of the eight equestrian disciplines recognized by the Fédération Equestre Internationale (FEI), and are held every four years. The Games have never before been held outside of Europe; nor have all eight disciplines ever previously been held together at a single site— both firsts that will be achieved at the Kentucky Horse Park. The Games will be broadcast on NBC Sports, which has made the largest commitment to network coverage of equestrian sport in U.S. television history. The 2010 Games are expected to have a statewide economic impact of $150 million, and current sponsors include the Rolex Company and an unprecedented $10 million title sponsor, Alltech. It is anticipated that more than 600,000 tickets will be sold for the 16-day competition.
