Somerset County Park Commission Lord Stirling Stable has announced the dates for the Fall Horse Care Workshops 102 designed for individuals who are seeking to gain knowledge and confidence around horses through a combination of non-riding activities and hands-on experience.
Horse Care Workshop 102 will be held at Lord Stirling Stable, 256 South Maple Avenue in Basking Ridge, New Jersey beginning Saturday, October 26, 2019 (providing weather does not delay currently running programs). Classes will meet for 5 consecutive Saturdays from 10:00 A.M. to 12:00 Noon.
Students in Workshop 102 will build upon their experiences in Workshop 101, which is a pre-requisite for this class. Advanced topics including nutrition, clipping, bandaging, and basic conformation will be explored, and the important roles the farrier and veterinarian play in a horse's life will be discussed. There is no riding involved in the program.
Registration is now open and will be available up to the opening day of the Workshops as space permits. Fee is $60 for Somerset County residents and $90 for non-residents.
For additional information or to confirm program start date, please call Lord Stirling Stable at 908-722-1200, ext. 5010. Individuals with a hearing or speech impairment can call NJ Relay Service at 711.
