Horse Ownership Resources, Skills and Education for Youth (HORSE U) offers young people a great way to expand their knowledge and skills about horses and other equines. The daylong workshop, sponsored by the Auburn University Department of Animal Sciences and the Alabama County Cooperative Extension System, will be Saturday, Oct. 11. The program begins at 8:30 a.m. at the Stanley Wilson Beef Teaching Unit on the Auburn University campus. The $20 registration
fee includes lunch and a T-shirt.
The HORSE U program will focus on information and skills important for youth ages 9 and up who work with horses. Participants will attend sessions on applied nutrition, gestation cycle and a trivia session about basic horse knowledge. Hands-on components include basic lameness evaluations, hoof care and injection how-to’s. The sessions are designed to be educational for everyone whether they are involved in showing, speed events or recreational riding.
