In consideration of COVID-19 safety restrictions, our 2021 Horse Management Seminar is going VIRTUAL! Due to the virtual format, rather than one full-day seminar, this year's program will be divided into three weekly webinars beginning the first Monday in February. Each week's webinar will be held from 6:30 - 8:30 pm and feature two guest speakers followed by a panel Q&A session. Please register for each week that you plan to attend - you may register for 1, 2, or all 3 webinars. Topics and speakers for each week are listed below.
