Horse Levels-Riding and Knowledge Motivation
Now is a good time to invest in working on your levels certification. Take your Horse Levels written tests! Make an appointment with Nadine to take your test. If you feel you need to study then become real familiar with your horse manual. If you don’t have a horse manual then pick one up at the Extension office. Information and study guides are located at gunnison.colostate.edu.
Manuals for beef, swine, lamb, goat, horse, dog, and rabbit are also available in the Extension office. These are excellent resources for raising and feeding your animal and completing your record book. Project help is available for your project also.
