EQU165 Equine Care and Management 3 credits This course concentrates on the principles underlying best practices in the care and handling of equines. Those practices that maintain health and prevent injury are explored with an understanding of the equine as a domesticated biological creature that has evolved from a wild, herd-living, grazing, flight-oriented, prey species. Topics to be studied are aligned with hands-on activities of EQU165L, and include equine behavior, daily care and health needs, equestrian activities, tack and equipment, and emergency care. Safety is considered throughout, as well as the business concerns of those involved in the care, custody, and control of animals. Enrollment in EQU165L is a recommended companion for Equine Studies majors. EQU165L Equine Care and Management Lab 1 credit This laboratory course provides hands-on experience in the care and handling of equines in a professional stable setting. Special emphasis is placed on prevention of illness and injury. Course activities are aligned with the classroom study of EQU165 so that the student develops a professional caliber of hands-on skill in equine management. Topics to be addressed will include safe handling techniques, daily routine, grooming, selection and fit of tack and equipment, barn safety, basic feeding, parasite control, and emergency care. Enrollment in EQU165 is a recommended companion for Equine Studies Majors. EQU166 Facility Design and Operation 3 credits This course examines the planning, construction, maintenance, and operation of equestrian facilities. Barn placement, design, and layout are covered in detail, considering such factors as environmental concerns, drainage, ventilation, efficiency, safety and fire prevention, pastures, fencing, maintenance procedures, and purchasing and storing feed. Also covered are record keeping, insurance requirements; and selection, training and management of staff. EQU166L is a recommended companion for Equine Studies majors. EQU166L Facility Design and Operation Lab 1 credit This course is the practical lab component of EQU166, enabling students to examine and consider applications of the course concepts in a variety of real-life settings. EQU166 is a recommended companion for Equine Studies majors. EQU170 Equine Communication 1 credit This course is a study in the safe and gentle handling of equines, founded on an understanding of the history of the species and using non-verbal body language communication. Students learn to distinguish resistance based in fear from that based in disrespect. Meeting the animal on its own terms leads to more effective and meaningful communication, and thereby a safer and more productive relationship. EQU171 Concepts of Equine Massage 1 credit This course will prepare the student to do a simple but effective equine sports massage. The material will include how and why massage therapy works, covering rudimentary equine anatomy, physiology and kinesiology. Students learn how to do basic massage therapy strokes from effleurage to trigger points and stretch work, with plenty of hands-on experience.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
