Hats Off Day!


Please remember to donate hats to Hats Off Day: farm hats, stallion hats, equine industry / business hats —- any hat is appreciated (including outdated, stallion no longer standing, even “factory damaged” hats).

When a member of the general public receives a hat, he/she immediately feels a closer tie to our industry. Our goal is to generate goodwill towards the horse industry.

Hats may be dropped off at:

Rood and Riddle Equine Hospital
2150 Georgetown Road
Lexington, KY 40511


If you would like for someone to pick up the hats, please call Mary Yozwiak at 859-233-0371.

Deadline for submission is Tuesday, July 25, 2017.
