Center to host listening sessions for horse owners

On January 17 and 18, the newly proposed Appalachian Horse Center will host listening sessions with horse owners living in Breathitt, Floyd, Harlan, Knott, Leslie, Letcher, Magoffin, Perry and Pike counties. The initial work group is interested in hearing horse owners’ thoughts on the proposed Appalachian Horse Center, which will be located in one of the nine counties.

All sessions are open to all horse owners in these counties and will be held on Sunday, January 17, at 2 p.m. at the Leslie County Extension Office at 22045 Main Street in Hyden; Monday, January 18, at 10 a.m. at the Hampton Inn meeting room, 70 Morton Boulevard, Hazard; and Monday, January 18, at 5 p.m. at the Mountain Arts Center, 50 Hal Rogers Drive, Prestonsburg.

Horse owners may attend any of the meetings. The work group will briefly explain the initial concept of the center, but most of the time will be spent hearing horse owners’ thoughts of what they want it to become.

There will be a series of meetings open to the general public in February to present the concept.
