First time horse owner class
Hi there! I am a barn manager at a horse rescue, and we were thinking about starting a once a month "first time horse owner" class. We would offer it to anyone, but cater towards those who just acquired their first horse, or are thinking about getting a horse for the first time.
We obviously can't teach anyone everything about horses in a one hour class, but we're also going to put together a booklet to take home with (what we hope will be) some helpful advice.
What I need from you guys is some information!
As someone who is 'new' to horses, or new to owning a horse, would you be interested in attending a class like this? (Just a one time thing for an hour some evening. We were thinking of charging $10 a person to cover the cost of materials, and help raise funds for the rescue.)
What are/were some of the biggest questions you had, or things you wish you would have known when you got your horse?
Anything you think we should cover in particular?
(remember to keep it basic! We're just covering general horse care. Nutrition, safety, shelter, health, etc. Riding/training/fun things will be mentioned, but not focused on!)
