Weekend Equestrian Program


Liz Webb

I want candy.....but my pony... doesn't!   This presentation will cover the many different feedstuffs available for equines.  Information about feeding roughages, concentrates and supplements will be discussed and a hands on take away activity will be provided.  Learn and be able to identify what's in your horse's daily ration!


Hey, hey ...HAY!  Fiber should be the basis of any horse's diet.  This presentation will cover the criteria you need to know to do a visual evaluation of your hay.   This hands on session will involve hay samples and a score sheet to use at WEP or back at the barn.  A brief explanation of chemical analysis of hay will also be covered.
