Presented by Iron Oak Canyon Ranch's Animal Care Academy, this segment of our Equine Education series of clinics and classes will focus on hauling horses in trailers. Anyone who’s ever tried knows loading and hauling your horse in a trailer is not as simple as it seems.
In this class, you’ll discover easy, gentle techniques for loading difficult horses, how to properly hitch up a trailer, how to drive safely with a trailer, and how to deal with contingencies while hauling. You’ll learn safe loading and unloading, as well as checklists to ensure your trailer is in good condition and ready for the road.
This class will be taught by ranch owner Lessa Ritzma, whose previous career credits include zookeeper and exotic animal trainer, along with over twenty years of horse experience. Guest lecturers may teach portions of the class.
This is an audit-only, hands-off class. A live equine may participate for the demonstration portion. All participants will qualify for the Equine Education: Easy Trailer Loading and Safe Hauling credit for Iron Oak Canyon Ranch's Equine Education certificate.
$50 per participant for 2-hour class. Limit 10 participants. Weather permitting.
