On April 4th 2011, Students from the "Performance Horse Handlers Course" at the REACH campus of Ridgetown College were treated to a field trip to Equine Guelph and OVC Instructors Doug Nash and Sharon McMaster report the class was very impressed by the future opportunities displayed.


One Participant commented, "It was an awesome experience, seeing first-hand how and what it takes to operate such a facility and the many opportunities available for careers addressing the welfare of Horses."

The live demonstrations on Anatomy and the use of Heart Monitors and lectures provided by Equine Guelph was the best part!!!"
