ANS 1016 Basic Horse Handling and Safety

Horses are large animals that have a strong flight instinct. This behavior can create dangerous situations for humans working around them. This class will prepare students to work safely around horses and develop skills essential to employment on a horse farm. As a basic class, it is intended for students with limited horse handling skills. Students already having intermediate to advanced horse handling skills may take ANS 2232C Advanced Horse Handling Skills instead of this class. This class includes several opportunities for hands-on, experiential learning.
