March Madness Equine Management Series

Equine owners, managers, and enthusiasts are encouraged to join the online March Madness Equine Management Series organized by Dr. Karin Bump (Executive Director, CCE Madison County) and Nicole Tommell (Ag Business Management Specialist with the CNYDLFC Regional Team). This collaboration launches a new 5-part equine management series throughout the month of March.  The program focuses on critical fundamentals in equine management including behavior, nutrition, finances and liability.   The presentations are geared to an adult audience yet suitable for older youth as well.

Spread over 5 days, each two-hour session provides up to 90 minutes of prepared content with at least 30 minutes retained to ensure ample time for discussion and addressing participant questions.  Participants can register for individual sessions ($10 each) or register for the series and receive a certificate of completion, a 25% off Ariat coupon (online), a coupon for Poulin Grain, and 20% off code for Equine Law & Horse Sense.
