Excellent horse care & management requires mastery of the basics of equine health. You have the potential to know your horse better than any one else and to be his/her best advocate. Turn that potential into reality in this clinic by learning and applying the basics of horse health care practices.
In this 3 hour, "hands on" clinic we'll cover the physical examination; what makes up a comprehensive evaluation and how to perform it on a live horse. Among other things, you'll learn how to use a stethoscope, take a rectal temperature and evaluate intestinal motility. We'll send you home with a check list of what is considered normal for each system we examine. We'll go over basic emergency protocols, how to best prepare for the most common emergencies and what to do before the vet gets there.
