Class begins Spring 2021
Students will learn the necessary skills to care for horses and gain an understanding of basic science, behavior and nutrition. Students will be introduced to basic anatomy and physiology and develop skills in animal husbandry, proper nutrition, and restraint & handling. Learn how to assess lameness, soundness and common injuries, as well as normal parameters of the healthy horse & how to maintain them. We will review traditional veterinary care and an introduction of non-traditional therapies such as laser, magnets, & Rieki. There is no riding and no horse experience required. Textbook not included in tuition.
