LEXINGTON, Ky. (Oct. 12, 2010) — After a magnificent performance during the Opening Ceremony of the 2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games, world-renowned cowboy dressage trainer and equestrian performer Eitan Beth-Halachmy became gravely ill and collapsed requiring emergency care from the UK HealthCare medical team on site and paramedics from the Lexington Division of Fire and Emergency Medical Services.
