The Virginia Horse Council Foundation Presents Equine Education Series



DOSWELL, VA--The horse world enjoys generations of tradition and history, but with the weight of these years also comes an abundance of conflicting opinions when it comes to equine care and management. To provide science-based guidance on topics and questions of interest to anyone involved with horses or the horse industry, The Virginia Horse Council Foundation, along with Virginia Tech and the Virginia Horse Industry Board, are holding a free Equine Education Seminar Series at the Virginia Horse Festival on April 2nd. Industry experts will present the latest information on equine nutrition, vaccination, hoof care, toxic pasture plants, legal aspects of horse ownership, and equine acupuncture. 

The Equine Education Seminar Series is a progression from and expansion upon the immensely successful New Horse Owner Certification Series held at the Virginia Horse Festival in 2015. This year, the topics and level of information will hold something new for everybody, from first-time owners to seasoned industry veterans. 

Participants who attend three or more of the six available classes will receive membership in the Virginia Horse Council for 2016, a tote bag with educational materials, and an invitation to the VHC meeting and luncheon on April 2nd. Participation in the seminar series is free for anyone with tickets to the Virginia Horse Festival. For more information and to register for the VHC Annual Meeting and Luncheon, please visit  

Seminar speakers and event organizers encourage anyone involved in the horse industry to attend. For more information, see the attached flyer, or visit
