The World Equestrian Games are set to begin later this month. Now, the event sponsor, Alltech, is coming to the rescue of the event's budget.
Organizers have cut half a million dollars from the budget.
The Lexington Herald-Leader reports the cuts are from lower than expected ticket sales and construction of the hundreds of temporary buildings at the Kentucky Horse Park.
Alltech is stepping in with nearly $1 million it's raised in the past two and a half weeks.
Pearse Lyons, the president of the Nicholasville-based feed supplement company, says he'll provide $2.5 million in the form of workers.
About 50 of them will move to the Horse Park to help with finances, public relations and other operations.
