Horse Sense; Lindsey named new Texas Tech equestrian center director
Former Executive Director of the Stock Horse of Texas Association and experienced equestrian Kim Lindsey has been selected as the new director of the Texas Tech Equestrian Center. She'll begin her duties on Monday (Feb. 6), said officials with the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources today.
Lindsey will be instrumental in managing the student, teaching and research programs housed at the Texas Tech Equestrian Center, a 45-acre facility located roughly 10 miles from the university's main campus.
"Kim has extensive knowledge of ranch, cattle and equine management," said Leslie Thompson, chairman of Tech's Department of Animal and Food Sciences. "We're excited about her joining the department and know that under her management, we can look forward to a bright future for the equestrian center."
Separately, the Texas Tech Therapeutic Riding Center's Heather Hernandez has received a promotion. She'll now serve as co-director of the university's TTRC, which is housed inside the Equestrian Center.
The equestrian center has a collection of facilities including two indoor arenas, six outdoor arenas and a 180-stall barn. A number of equine-related programs are based in the Department of Animal and Food Sciences. The Ranch Horse Team, the Rodeo Team, the Horse Judging Team and the Therapeutic Riding Program all use the center.
