Equine Science Series for kids ages 8 to18 who want to learn more about horses or explore a career in the horse industry.  These interactive educational sessions will provide participants the opportunity to gain valuable knowledge and skills on every aspect of the horse industry.

We will explore the horse from the inside out and learn about the industry itself with particular emphasis on career opportunities. We will also highlight all of the opportunities available in the NC 4-H Equine Science Program.

This program will consist of educational classes, hands-on activities,  guest speakers such as vets and farriers, and field trips to equine facilities in the area.

The  first four sessions in this series are:

  • Friday, September 17, 2021: Basic Care, Feed and Nutrition
  • Friday, October 22, 2021: Exploring the Horses Gut
  • Friday, November 19, 2021: Leg, Ligaments and Suspensory
  • Wednesday, December 22, 2021: No Hoof No Horse

All classes are from 2:00 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. and will be held at the Currituck County Rural Center (CCRC) classroom (white barn across from the  playground).
