Twice yearly, JoAnn uses her bachelor and master degrees in Animal Science and Ag Education to teach a class called "Equine Science/Horse Sense," a continuing ed. class for adults who are thinking of buying a horse, or have always loved horses, or who just want to learn more about them.  Classes are held Tuesday evenings 6pm-8:30 for 12 weeks.

The purpose of this class, held at Fairwinds Farm and offered through the Cecil College Equine Institute, is to teach basic aspects of horse care and ownership with a hands-on approach. Students work with various breeds and types of horses.  The course includes theory, live demonstrations, and extensive hands-on experience.  Topics include general horse information and terminology, breeds, parts of the horse, conformation, stabling, feeding, hoof care, bathing, diseases and parasites, first aid and tack.

Next class starts March 6 2012.

JoAnn and Ted are co-directors of the Equine Institute at Cecil College.
