My Horse University Summer Horse Care 101

Horse owners around the country look forward to summertime equestrian activities to get them through the winter months. Due to the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic, many shows, trail rides and clubs have cancelled their live events. In a heartfelt effort to support our fellow horse enthusiasts, the Michigan State University Extension Equine Team has put together a Summer Horse Care online course series and is offering it FREE of charge during 2020. Participants can earn a certificate for each of the following units:

  • Unit 1: Routine Health Care – covers vaccinations, deworming, and dental care
  • Unit 2: Pasture Management – covers pasture planning, renovation, forage species, grazing management, and toxic plants
  • Unit 3: Manure Management – covers water quality, manure management options, and composting
  • Unit 4: Biosecurity – biosecurity protocol for equine and people, wildlife and insect control, and COVID-19 resources
