Being a top horseman or horsewoman requires dedication. You must learn all you can about them and set/achieve goals alongside your horse.

In the Horse Project, you’ll develop respect for horses, responsibility in caring for them and discipline in the way horses are handled. This project is open to anyone interested in learning about horses, even if you don’t own one.

In this project, you’ll learn:

  • The history of horses
  • How to have fun with horses
  • How to safely work with and around horses
  • Proper horse welfare and related health issues
  • How to identify different breeds
