HorseXploration is a self-directed learning lesson which will allow youth to become involved in a horse program regardless of if they own a horse, where they reside, or if they have any existing horse knowledge. HorseXploration has been designed for youth ages 12 and over, however it may be appropriate for youth of all ages.

Level One of HorseXploration will provide youth with a variety of horse related information, quizzes to test their newly gained knowledge and activities to increase their understanding and appreciation of horses and the equine industry.

Youth will learn about topics such as horse breeds, anatomy, health, nutrition, behavior, management, and equipment. HorseXploration will let youth explore the world of horses right through their computer!
