There are a lot of people across the college who work on equine issues, or help contribute to the success of the program.

UK Ag Equine Programs' current director is Dr. Jill Stowe, an associate professor in agricultural economics. (Past directors can be found here). An executive committee called the Equine Programs' Council provides a shared leadership function and an Equine Industry Advisory Committee (which replaced an interim committee) advises on issues and direction important to the equine industry. Working groups of faculty, staff and students form around areas of equine interest to provide recommendations, planning, events and materials. Day-to-day operations of Equine Programs are handled by the Equine Programs Office. Other groups include the College of Agriculture, Food and Environment Equine Forum, a group of faculty, staff and students from across UK who are interested in equine issues. Equine Forum also includes a growing number of external constituents.
