Equine welfare and well-being are at the top of the list for most of us horse owners. Join us in this class to learn what’s best for horses as well as what’s eco-sensitive. We will cover site design, fencing and footing options, feeders, drainage ideas--including track paddocks, slow feeder, and small-scale trail courses which act as rain gardens. Enrichment opportunities for the horse--ways to make our horse’s surroundings less static and more stimulating--will be at the heart of this presentation.
