Horses can live long happy lives and you can help ensure they do by performing fundamental health checks and observing changes that warn of trouble. And what more dramatic a place to learn about horse health than a rescue ranch. Walking a rescue ranch with a vet is like seeing a year's worth of health checks in a single evening. We'll be visiting four different rescue ranches over the summer with four different vets you can learn from.

Dr. Mack earned her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from Colorado State University and most recently finished an intense one-year internship at Littleton Equine Medical Center where she honed in her skills in internal medicine, lameness, surgery and emergency medicine.
Dr. Mack did a fantastic job at another School of Ranch workshop, and we're happy that she's leading this one. Join her as she does the rounds at Mustangs To The Rescue, a local horse rescue ranch. You'll come away better able to do basic home check-ups, and to evaluate changes in your horse's condition that might lead to earlier care and better outcomes.
Dr. Persia grew up riding in western disciplines including cattle sorting, reining, and western dressage. Dr. Persia worked on a ranch where she developed a strong passion for equine management, teaching, and rehabilitation. Combining this passion for horses and love of intricate science led her towards obtaining her doctorate in veterinary medicine.
Dr. Persia received her Bachelors of Science in Animal Science from Oregon State University where she completed an honors thesis and developed a strong appreciation for equine science. Dr. Persia earned her DVM from the University of California, Davis where she worked as an Equine ICU technician and an after-hours anesthesia technician for emergency surgeries. She then completed an equine internship at Littleton Equine Medical Center in Littleton, Colorado. Through these experiences, she developed a strong interest in critical care, internal medicine, sports medicine and advanced dentistry.
Responsible, well-behaved teens are welcome. The horses on this ranch have been through a lot, and we don't want to put younger children at any risk.
These workshops are free, and contributions are welcome. These events cost over $400 each to produce and it would be great to cover our costs. Any funds after breakeven are shared between the rescue ranches and School of Ranch, all 501c3 nonprofits.
You can attend as many as you want!
You can register onsite as well. Pre-registering saves you time and makes things easier on us. We'd appreciate it.
