Join your cowgirl sisters, along with family and friends, by attending an informative and educational event at WSU – Pullman, WA.  This event is put on my the College of Veterinary medicine.

The 2018 Horse Course will take place in Bustad Hall and the Animal Disease and Biotechnical Facility (ADBF) at the WSU College of Veterinary Medicine.  Signs will be posted on the day of the event to direct to the correct location.

To accommodate more participants and to increase the breadth of information presented, we have expanded Horse Course to two sessions! The sessions will occur simultaneously, so please review the topics for each session and choose one to register for. The Core Course is designed for first-time Horse Course attendees, presenting foundational information that we believe is essential for all ages and levels of equestrians. The Rotating Course is designed for returning participants, and will feature different topics every year. Feel free to choose whichever course you wish; age, experience level, or number of times you’ve attended Horse Course do not matter. It’s all up to personal preference!

If you have questions or concerns please contact Katelyn Littleton at
