Auburn University Invites You to Horse U




Does your child adore horses? Do they always want to learn as much as possible about our equine friends?

Horse U is a hands-on experience where your child can get to know horses from head to hoof, all while learning a little more about the practices of the equestrian world. This event will have a variety of different stations that will allow children to learn more about the maintenance, nutrition, anatomy and so much more that will leave your child feeling more comfortable around horses and leaving them wanting to know more.

This program is planned throughout the semester by undergraduate students in Auburn University’s Department of Animal Science. These students have been working hard to provide your child with a quality, fun and educational program.

Do you have a high-school-aged equine enthusiast? This year, Horse U is proud to announce an advanced youth program. This program will offer the same educational benefits offered at previous Horse U events while allowing for more in-depth discussion of equine topics.
