Animal Handling Series

UT Extension, UT AgResearch, TSU Extension, and Lost Creek Cattle Company are excited to offer the Animal Handling Series: Low-Stress Handling, Training and Management. This program provides training to develop and enhance evidence-based equine handling, selection, evaluation, and management information for attendees.

Due to COVID-19 the 2020 program provided a virtual option. Topics including equine behavior and perception, desensitization, handling, training, and working cattle were covered. Hands-on events during the in-person session were held each day, including a pasture walk and roping clinic.

Information presented was applicable to beginning through experienced equine owners and business operators, and relevant to horses of all ages/training levels.

Dates for 2021 programs will be released shortly.

Our 2020 sessions are available on the UTHorse YouTube Channel
