Kentucky Horse Council Offers $1 Million Personal Liability Policy to Membership
Lexington, Kentucky, January 4, 2007 - The Kentucky Horse Council
(KHC), a statewide association for all horse owners and enthusiasts,
now provides a $1 Million Excess Personal Liability Insurance Policy
for all of its individual and family members. Effective January 1,
2007, the policy will cover any legal judgements that result from
injury or damage caused by the members' horse to others, provided the
injury or damage is not due to gross negligence.

"As we all know, although perhaps hate to admit, all horse activities
have a level of risk just due to the nature of the animal. Even the
calmest horse can cause injury accidently if it gets out of its
pasture and causes a vehicle accident. In today's litiginous society,
we all need to protect ourselves and our families from crippling legal
judgements. A policy such as this enables the equestrian to enjoy his
horse knowing he is protected", says Madelyn Millard, President of the
Kentucky Horse Council.

Ginny Grulke, Executive Director of KHC, adds, "The low cost of this
insurance policy is possible through the grouping of horsemen across
the country whose overall risk is low. Everyone who owns a horse
should consider this coverage as a necessity of horse ownership to
protect themselves, their horses, and their financial well being."

The premium for the policy is included in the KHC annual membership
fee, which is $35.00 (individual) or $50 (family). The policy will
cover up to $1 Million coverage per incident for all members,
including family members with a family membership. Note that this
policy is not applicable to those who run a business involving horses,
but covers those horses owned by individuals.
