The horse teaching farm is also utilized during AnS 101, AnS 332, academic quadrathlon, 4-H Round up, Master Equine Manager and other outreach programs as well as Block and Bridles LNA showmanship contest. Farm tours are given frequently to visitors, prospective students and the public.
Horses are critical to the teaching process, especially with more Animal Science students from non-farm backgrounds and/or non-livestock farms. Allowing students to have contact with animals and exposing them to management techniques is a great experience and is the principle purpose of this farm.
