2017 Horsemanship Preparation

By admin | Horsemanship

We are excited to announce that this year we will be helping all the junior riders prepare for the horsemanship test by providing 5 practice questions each month leading up to the finals. These questions will not necessarily all be on the 2017 test, but are a combination of questions that have been on past years’ tests and could show up again on this year’s test. Each month we will list 5 questions and the following month we will provide the answers.The questions and answers will remain posted on our website for 2 months and then will be taken down. So make sure to check back each month and start your studying! Good luck!
