This four-session course is designed to educate and encourage women horse owners.
No doubt about it, women are the majority owners and caretakers of horses.
In Iowa, horse ownership is big business, with nearly 55,000 horses, ponies, mules and donkeys on more than 9,000 farms. The state’s total annual sales of equine was $19.7 million, ranking Iowa 11th in the nation as reported by the United States Department of Agriculture’s 2017 Census of Agriculture.
Cora Carpenter is the Women in Ag Student Assistant. This summer she was an Adventure Guide Intern at Fair Oak Farms.
