According to the United States Department of Agriculture, there are approximately 3.6 million horses in the US, with 140,000 on farms in Kentucky.  Many of those horses are transported by trailers to and from farms, veterinarian visits and boarding facilities and can be prone to accidents out on the open road.  


A vehicle accident in Paducah involving the Murray State University Rodeo Team resulted in a horse being euthanized. No students were injured.
