LEXINGTON, Ky – Jamie Hulet has joined the team at Horse Country, Inc., as the new Lead Concierge. Her role will help expand Horse Country’s offerings to large groups, VIP clientele, and more while the organization maintains its mission to connect guests to the horse, land, and people of Kentucky’s equine industry.
“We are so excited to welcome Jamie to the team,” explained Hallie Hardy, executive director of Horse Country. “She brings a needed skill set to the organization at a pivotal time. Her experience in the meeting planning and greater tourism community, let alone her enthusiasm for our mission, make her ideal to take on the Lead Concierge position. Horse Country had a great 2023, but as we bring Jamie on board, I’m even more optimistic for our future as we look to increase our presence in the community and continue to connect people to the horse, land, and people of Kentucky’s signature equine industry.”
Jamie brings an extensive background in hospitality sales and meeting planning to Horse Country. Notably, she served as Corporate and Convention Sales Manager for Opry Entertainment Group, Grand Ole Opry, and Ryman Auditorium, in Nashville, Tennessee. Jamie is active in several professional and trade organizations including the Professional Convention Management Association and American Society of Association Executives, as well as Meeting Professionals International and Nashville Concierge Association, both of which she served on the Board of Directors.
“I am thrilled to be a part of Horse County, Inc. There is incredible potential to grow the equine tour experience in the Horse Capital of the World, especially as Lexington continues to gain notoriety as a top travel destination” says Jamie. She and her husband, Steve, recently relocated back to Lexington from the Nashville area. In her spare time, she enjoys hiking, volunteering for animal rescue organizations and cheering for the Kansas City Chiefs.
