Tennessee Master Horse Programs to be held across the state in early 2018


The University of Tennessee Animal Science Department will be holding Tennessee Master Horse Programs (TMHP) across the state during the months of February and March. TMHP is an educational workshop designed to provide science-based equine nutrition, management, and health information applicable to all horse owners and those interested in equine well-being.

TMHP uses a combination of classroom discussion and hands-on teaching to cover a wide variety of equine-related topics, and attendees will receive knowledge needed to implement best management practices on their operations and improve equine care. Topics covered at each program include equine nutrition, responsible horse ownership, equine health care, pasture management, equine economics, waste management, and hot topics.
