Equine Mini Series

Author: Fernanda Camargo

Planning Unit: Animal and Food Sciences

Major Program: Equine

Outcome: Initial Outcome

The Equine Mini Series was offered at the state level led by 4-H agents Mary Jane Little and Deana Reed and Extension Equine Specialist Dr. Fernanda Camargo. The program boasted educational topics ranging from farrier demos and diseases to forage and pasture health. Specialists in these fields presented over the span of two weeks, with 120 youth & certified volunteers registered. The audience enhanced their knowledge and engaged with presenters throughout the duration of the series. This showed an intermediate outcome for sustaining certified volunteers through recertification continuing education hours and also provided educational hours for 4-H members to count towards their 4-H horse project. The evaluations were conducted through Qualtrics surveys and shows a 22.7% increase of correct answers from Part 1 in differentiating from pre and post evaluation. In Part 2, we saw a 33.3% increase of correct answers when comparing the pre and post evaluations. 

We have received positive feedback from agents, leaders, and parents regarding the Equine Mini Series and how it has been very helpful for youth and leaders to earn hours while COVID restrictions for gathering are still in place.
