We will offer two classes –  beginners and intermediate. The beginners class will meet from 10 a.m. to noon. The intermediate class will meet from 1 to 3 p.m. These classes are free, but registration is required. Instructors will teach attendees how to care for their horse, signs to look for when a horse is sick, and basic horsemanship. We will have some guest speakers as well. Classes will be held in the classroom in the white barn at the CCRC.

You are also welcome to bring your own horse! All arenas will be open for riding after class. A current Negative Coggins (within 12 months) is required on all horses entering the CCRC.

Registration by March 18, 2019, is required. You can register online or contact the office at 252-232-2261.
