BASKING RIDGE, N.J. — Somerset County Park Commission Lord Stirling Stable has announced the dates for the Winter Horse Care Workshops 102 and 103, 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 Workshops 102 and 103 will be held at Lord Stirling Stable, 256 South Maple Avenue in Basking Ridge, beginning Saturday, Feb.17, 2018 (providing weather does not delay currently running programs). Classes will meet for five consecutive Saturdays, ending on March 17, 2018. Workshop 102 will meet from 10 a.m. to noon and Workshop 103 will meet from 1 to 3 p.m.

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. Workshop 103 will further develop care and management skills while increasing knowledge of equine behavior. Workshop 102 is a pre or co-requisite for 103. The classes may be taken concurrently. There is no riding involved in either program.
