Due to COVID-19 and the governor's executive order to "Stay Home" we are continuing to offer our Hooked on Horses sessions online.

We will provide 30 minutes of information every Thursday at 11:30 am. These are NOT videos to watch. It is LIVE and INTERACTIVE. Everyone who participates will be able to ask and answer questions in real time.

Our next sessions are listed below. Select one, two, or all four sessions by reserving your rider's place right now! The best part is, we are doing this at NO COST to you!!!

Registration is required. Click on the topic or topics that you want to register for.

May 21   Hay! Does it Matter? Saddle type and fit is important for both the horse and rider. Good fit for the horse means the horse is comfortable. Good fit for the rider means the rider feels secure.

May 28   Time to Saddle Up Knowing when a horse has a fever, not breathing correctly, rapid pulse, or the capillary refill time is very important.

June 4   Desensitizing Horses are flight animals. When they are scared, they run! In this session we will look at some techniques that will make the horse more confident in himself and trusting of you.

June 11   Safety Around Horses Whether you are grooming, leading, or riding, you need to think safety. This session will look at how you can be safe and enjoy your horse at the same time!
