This course is designed for potential horse owners, new horse owners and horse enthusiasts. Management techniques and practical aspects of horse care (including stabling, shoeing/hoof care, common diseases and emergency care) will be discussed in classroom lectures and extensive notes will be available on-line. In addition to the classroom lectures and demonstrations, optional field trips will be offered throughout the program schedule.
To assist those who might not be able to travel to New Brunswick or whose schedule does not allow in person attendance on a weekday morning, the course has been designed so it may be taken "on-line." On-line attendees will have access to all lecture and supplemental information provided to the in-class participants and there will be two weekly on-line "chat" sessions with Dr. Ralston to discuss the material covered in the lectures. These sessions will be scheduled at the start of the semester at a time which is convenient for the group. On-line registrants always have the option to participate in field trips and demonstrations – and even the classroom portion of the course - as their schedule permits. If you wish to be able to access the on-line course, you must provide an e-mail address at the time of registration so we can enter you into Rutgers' E-classroom system. Please note that the on-line course notes and materials have many videos and photos and high speed internet access is required to fully benefit from them; access using dial-up connections will be very frustrating, if not impossible.
