For anyone who wants to learn more about America’s favorite breeds, New Horizons has developed four special courses with the help of the American Paint Horse Association, the American Quarter Horse Association, the Appaloosa Horse Club, and the Arabian Horse Association.
Each special breed course may be purchased individually, or as part of the complete 101-110 Equine Science series. The breed-specific course replaces the standard EQU 105 course (“Ownership Considerations”). The complete series includes 10 courses, 60 lessons in all, with the 105 course dedicated to the things that make that particular breed unique.
