Horse Safety

Hello horse families:

We will have Horse Safety on Sunday, February 28th at 4 p.m. at the Yankton County Extension Office. Remember horse safety is a required event to attend if you plan to show your horse at the Yankton County Horse Show.

ALL youth must come prepared to give a 2-3 minute demonstration on a topic relating to horse safety. Please let me know by Feb. 19th what topic you will discuss. No two youth will be allowed to present on the same topic. Safety related to pulling a cart has already been taken.

If you cannot make this date, PLEASE let me know ASAP. You have the ability to go to a different county’s horse safety training, and I can help you find one to go to. I already know that Bon Homme County’s horse safety training will be March 20th at the Courthouse Annex at 1 p.m.
