Event Type: 

Are you interested in learning about horses?   Horse Fundamentals is designed for youth to learn about the horse's essential components. The material can be applied to Hippology, which means the study of the horse.  The Hippology Contest is a comprehensive, skills-based competition in which participants demonstrate the extent of their knowledge and understanding of equine science and husbandry.

Horse Fundamentals will focus on horse anatomy, colors, markings, breeds of horses, gaits, and English and Western performance events. Interactive activities will be utilized for the program.

Preparing for Hippology and Quiz Bowl

Studying for either contest is similar since the reference material is similar. The significant difference is Horse Quiz Bowl asks a question, and the youth answers, whereas Hippology asks questions via a written examination, slides, and stations. Practice each time the club meets. Have youth write questions or provide classroom activities.
