Beginning to professional levels of horsemen are welcome as we cover all divisions of equitation in the ongoing Applied Horse Husbandry series.

The series is made of 4 Segments plus 1 Summer Judging class in which we start with the front of the horse and move back. All classes can be taken out of sequence, and include hands-on seminars which take place outside the classroom.

All experience levels are welcome!
