Pest Control around the farm takes many forms - barn pests, pasture pests, and horse pests. To control them, we use many different forms of control including fly sprays for the barn and horse, and pest capture devices in and around the barn and de-wormers in both paste and daily form. Learn how to decipher the labels on your Fly Spray, and what to look for in De-Wormers and rotation, as well as what options are available to capture pests on the farm.
You are invited to learn about the anatomy of the horse's mouth and what bits can and cannot do to control the horse featuring the latest research by Dr. Hilary Clayton and Dr. Joyce Harmon. Increase your knowledge and gain a new perspective on bits so that you can increase your horse’s comfort in the bridle. This is an interactive seminar, attendees will be actively participating, not just listening to a lecture.
