Horse Management Field Days
As in year’s past, the Horse Management Field Days will be held regionally in February 2024. This will allow us to utilize the live sessions as supplements to the TMHP and avoid conflicts that affected participation during the Fall months. These events will be open to individuals that are not registered in the TMHP as well (same as previous years). The dates and locations are as follows:

Eastern Region: February 6, 2024 from 5-9pm Eastern, Brehm Animal Science Arena, Knoxville, TN
Central Region: February 13, 2024 from 5-9pm Central, MTREC, Spring Hill, TN
Western Region: February 12, 2024 from 5-9pm Central, First Farmers Cooperative, Lexington, TN

Registration cost will be $5 prior to February 5, 2024, and $10 at the door (cost is included for TMHP registrants).  Each event is open to youth and adults. More details to follow, including specific Horse Management Field Day Flyers.
