Do you need a horse that’s been to college? Now is your opportunity at the Feather River College 18th Annual Production Horse Sale, scheduled for Saturday, May 21. You’ll find top quarter horse bloodlines and versatile riding horses as products of the FRC Equine Studies Program. Previews will start at 9 a.m. and the sale at 1 p.m. “The underlying philosophy of the program is simple–with humans and horses alike, learning never stops,” says Russell Reid, Director of Equine Studies. “Whatever your horsemanship level, each horse and situation offers a new learning challenge. The most important principle of the program is that anyone who works with horses needs to acquire a deep understanding of the animals and an ability to communicate effectively with them.” Feather River College is developing a Bachelor of Science Pilot Program in Equine and Ranch Management in cooperation with the California Community College Chancellor’s Office.  This unique degree will combine scientific agricultural ranch management courses with hands-on horse related disciplines that incorporate both traditional and progressive performance-horse methods.  Students will have daily opportunities to work with horses and livestock while integrating management and business principles into working for, or creating a successful horse enterprise or ranch operation.  The Bachelor of Science program is anticipated to commence Fall semester of 2016. See the ad on page 46 for more info, or call 800-442-9799. Feather River College is located at 570 Golden Eagle Avenue, Quincy, Calif., 95971, and the website is www.frc.edu/equinestudies.
