According to the university, the program allows community members to participate in one-day training sessions with their own horses.

"People generally like to ride, so I wanted to throw some fun in there," Stephanie Speiser, senior lecturer in animal science, food and nutrition said. "We will start with a riding lesson and some fun things, and then in the afternoon we will basically do one of our laboratories that we teach here at the university."

Anyone interested can register by contacting Stephanie Speiser at 618-453-2329 or 618-924-1668.
