Rhyan Banas

Nick Routsong

Rhyan joined the RRP team as our Operations Manager in June of 2021 after extensive volunteerism at the Thoroughbred Makeover. With a background in both equine and corporate event management as well as a love of process improvement and organization, Rhyan enjoys supporting the RRP team through event and operations management.

It was a passion for the equine industry that originally moved Rhyan from her native home in Tampa, Florida to the Bluegrass State of Kentucky in 2015. After graduating from Florida State University with a bachelor’s degree in Business Management, she joined the staff at the Kentucky Horse Park where she served as an Equine Events Manager. As a hobby photographer, Rhyan spends much of her free time with her camera in hand; she also enjoys visiting a friend’s farm where she can be found grooming or borrowing OTTBs to ride.
