Free summer horse care course


Horse owners look forward to summertime equestrian activities to get them through the winter months.

Due to the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic, many shows, rides and clubs have cancelled their live events.

In a bid to support fellow horse enthusiasts, the Michigan State University Extension Equine Team has put together a Summer Horse Care Series and is offering it FREE of charge during 2020. Participants can earn a certificate for each of the following units:

  1. Routine Health Care – covers vaccinations, deworming, and dental care
  2. Pasture Management – covers pasture planning, renovation, forage species, grazing management, and toxic plants
  3. Manure Management – covers water quality, manure management options, and composting
  4. Biosecurity – biosecurity protocol for equine and people, wildlife and insect control, and COVID-19 resources.
