The Oklahoma County Extension office is putting on a cool program for folks interested in horse care:
Anyone who is interested in horses and wants to find out more about their training and care are invited to take part in the Oklahoma City area Horse Short Course beginning Thursday, September 10, at the Oklahoma County OSU Cooperative Extension auditorium.
Classes will get underway at 6:30 and continue until 8:30 p.m. every Thursday evening through October 22.
Instructors for the course include Dr. David Freeman, a State Extension Equine Specialist, Veterinarian Dr. Gene Parker, John Letham, a successful horse breeder, and Dr. Justin Talley, a State Extension Entomologist.
Training, nutrition, feeding management, pasture and hay needs, and breeding management are also courses that will be addressed in the seminar.
“This should be the single-most informative class horse lovers could take to find out what they need to know about the care and management of horses,” said Ray Ridlen, Agriculture and Horticulture Educator for the Oklahoma County OSU Cooperative Extension Service and an instructor for the course.
The seminar will be limited to the first 30 people and a pre-registration fee of $30 is required. For more information about the seminar, contact the Oklahoma County OSU Cooperative Extension Center at 713-1125.
