Discussing the course with the instructor, Greyeyes said the response was overwhelming and that the horsemen learned vital things in the care of horses feet.
With the increase of light horses in the area many of the participating horsemen have two or three horses, which run in horse meets during the summer.
According to Greyeyes the class indicated interest in a follow-up course to be conducted this summer or in the fall. The instructor also indicated his interest in a follow-up course.
"We were very fortunate to have the course considering the total cost was a minimum amount of $1,003.00," said Greyeyes.
