Presented by Iron Oak Canyon Ranch's Animal Care Academy, this segment of our Equine Education series of clinics and classes will focus on basic nutrition and physical activity for your horse.
In this class, you’ll discover how to keep your horse in tip-top shape, from providing a nutritious, species-appropriate diet, to the correct level and type of exercise for their fitness and ability level. Just like humans, horses thrive when fed nutritious food and given plenty of opportunity for mental and physical stimulation. While the nuances of equine nutrition and fitness are ever-changing (just like humans), this course will cover the basics and give you enough information to make your own decisions.
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. There will also be a professional guest lecturer.
This is an audit-only class with some opportunity for optional participation. A live equine may be available for demonstration purposes. All participants will qualify for the Equine Education: Equine Fitness and Nutrition credit for Iron Oak Canyon Ranch's Equine Education certificate. It will also qualify for a bonus credit for the Animal Care certificate.
$50 per participant for 2-hour class. Limit 10 participants. Weather permitting.
