More than 2,400 students from 49 counties made their way to the 2013 Kentucky Equine Youth Festival at the Kentucky Horse Park last month. In the large arena they watched demonstrations of equestrian sports including jumping, vaulting and dressage. Smaller sessions included workshops on vaulting, horse dentistry and the biomechanics of jockeys and racehorses
This is the second time for the festival. The first was held in 2010 in conjunction with the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games.
