Lexington, KY – September 8, 2011 – The Alltech National Horse Show, 128th Edition, announced today that Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital has been named the Official Veterinarians, Farriers and Equine Pharmacy for this year’s event, scheduled for the Alltech Arena at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky on Nov. 2 – 6, 2011.
 
Lexington-based Rood & Riddle is a full-service equine hospital established in 1986 as a referral center for horses requiring specialized medical and surgical care. Today, Rood & Riddle is known and respected throughout the world for its innovative and highly skilled treatment of horses.
 
The hospital facility at Rood & Riddle offers a full range of services including surgery, internal medicine, advanced diagnostic imaging, a focused Podiatry Center and a specialized Reproductive Center. The practice also provides ambulatory services (on-site care) for breeding farms, sport horse facilities, horse shows and events, with a variety of services, including emergency and preventative care, general reproduction, lameness, radiography, podiatry, and internal medicine.
 
Dr. Bill Rood and Dr. Tom Riddle formed a partnership in 1982 and four years later expanded their successful ambulatory practice by opening Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital. Today, Rood & Riddle is owned by 14 partners and includes over 50 veterinarians, who together hold 13 board certifications in surgery, internal medicine, theriogenology, cardiology, veterinary practice (equine) and ophthalmology.

“Rood & Riddle is extremely pleased to serve as the Official Veterinarians and Farriers for the upcoming Alltech National Horse Show. I feel this is the logical next step following our role as the Official Equine Hospital and Veterinary Partner of the 2010 Alltech World Equestrian Games,” Dr. Riddle said.  “Rood & Riddle’s participation in both the World Equestrian Games and the National Horse Show underscores our practice’s commitment to the sport horse. The Central Kentucky community embraced the World Games and I am confident that Kentuckians will be delighted to welcome the prestigious National Horse Show to the Horse Capital of the World.”
 
“Rood and Riddle is the one name you think of when you think of first-class veterinary care in Kentucky,” said Alltech National Horse Show President Mason Phelps, Jr. “They did an outstanding job at the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games last year, and we are thrilled to have the team at Rood & Riddle with us at this year’s debut of the Alltech National Horse Show at the Kentucky Horse Park.”
 
In addition to services provided in Kentucky, the Rood & Riddle sport horse veterinarians and podiatrists provide services in Wellington each winter and travel regularly to competitions throughout the eastern United States.

The Alltech National Horse Show, 128th Edition, will be held from November 2 – 6, 2011, at the beautiful, new Alltech Indoor Arena at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington.
