Join the Hood River Soil & Water Conservation District, Oregon Department of Agriculture and other local horse keepers as they provide a three-hour workshop on April 12 covering the basics of horse keeping and pasture management.
This workshop will provide guidance for horse keeping practices that promote horse health, build good relations between neighbors and add to a horse property’s value, all while protecting the land and water quality of the area.
Covered topics include: facility design and location, horse waste management, storm water runoff management, pasture and paddock care, weed control and much more. The last hour of the class will be spent touring a nearby horse facility that is implementing many of the management practices discussed in the class.
Bring all of your horse keeping and pasture questions because there will be plenty of time for discussion both during and after the presentations.
To register, go to Hood River Community Education at hrcommunityed.org or call 541-386-2055. For more information on the class contact Kris at firstname.lastname@example.org or 541-386-4588.
