Course teaches about horses and mud

Jackson Soil and Water Conservation District presents its annual horses and mud seminar Sept. 10.

The class helps horse owners cope with winter-related problems for their animals. Topics include mud and manure management, all-weather surface construction, horse health issues, pasture and grazing management, grant and cost-share programs, and more.

The seminar is part of the Smart Horse Stewardship Certification Program, a comprehensive management program that helps protect soil and water quality and improve horse health.

The seminar costs $6 for Smart Horse enrollees and $10 for others. Spots will be reserved upon receipt of payment.

Course materials are included in the cost and lunch will be provided. Please notify the conservation district of any special dietary requirements. Dress appropriately for the class and field trip.

The class is at the conservation district office at 573 Parsons Drive, Medford.
