Extension Horses Online!

The New Extension Horses Online!

Extension Horses is comprised of professionals from Land Grant Universities around the country collaborating to bring the public research-based information for educational use. The mission of Extension Horses, Inc. is to meet the educational and decision-making needs of the equine industry, allied industry partners, extension employees, and consumers by providing science-based information and learning opportunities through Internet-based initiatives.

The Extension Horses group is highly collaborative in nature and generates a variety of online-based resource materials. Products developed and distributed to the horse industry include online courses, infographics, podcasts, radio broadcasts, YouTube videos, and articles. Extension Horses is also active on social media and currently has reached over 1.6 million people through their Facebook page. Their most recent infographic on the new legislation mandate and its effect on hauling animals has been shared over 17,000 times and has reached over 1.4 million people. Another feature that is coming soon to their website is an online store where some of their materials can be bought as posters for use in barns and other educational avenues.
