Equine Husbandry Course At Post University

The first course in the series of six evening courses in Equine Husbandry — Basic Horse Ownership and Care — will be held from November 9 through December 28, from 6:30 to 9:20 pm, on Post University’s Waterbury Campus in MacDermid 103 (Park in the North Lot on Country Club Road, Exit 17 off I-84). This is a change from the original starting date of November 2.

Several enthusiastic horse owners have completed the full series and have been awarded their certificates.

These courses can be taken in any order and are open to anyone interested — no prerequisites are required. Classes are for eight weeks, three hours per week in the evening, and can earn either CEU credits or be for personal enrichment.

These courses cover the necessary information horse owners require. Basic Horse Ownership and Care will cover such topics as breeds, horse ID, housing requirements, and town zoning. Also selecting horses to buy and then what owners need to know about their upkeep once a horse is at home — including routines, feeding and watering, parasite control, vet and farrier visits, purchasing hay and feed, and care through all seasons.

Following this course will be five others, each of which runs for eight weeks, one evening per week — The Horse, Stable Management I & II, Equine Anatomy, and Equine Health.

To earn CEU (Continuing Education Units) credits the cost is $500, but if no credit is required, the cost is $350.

To register or for more information, call the Equine Management Department at Post University  203- 596-4631 or  send an email  to CBaker@post.edu or Jamison Wallace  at equifin@att.net.
