Equine Science

 

Equine Science provides a perfect foundation for a lifetime with horses.  We will look at the horse from a scientific standpoint. You will learn how and why horses think and react the way they do, and gain greater understanding of the horse's structure and athletic ability. You'll explore nutrition, grooming, tack selection, health care and horsekeeping topics to help you become a better horse person. Included in your lessons will be the essentials of horse ownership, care and management and learn some valuable information that everyone who works with or dreams of owning a horse should know.
