Each year the University of Wisconsin River Falls offers a Principles of Training Horses class where 50 two-year-old horses are started under saddle by UWRF students under the direction of faculty member Nathan O’Connor. The training class is offered the spring semester of each year and is concluded with the annual Colts in Training Auction where all of the horses are auctioned off to the general public. UWRF faculty member Nathan O’Connor and four of his students will give an hour long presentation on the Colts in Training Program at UWRF. During the presentation the UWRF students will demonstrate the riding and ground skills that they have taught their two-year-old horses this past semester and will also give an overview of how the Colts in Training Program operates. Additional information about the UWRF Colts in Training Auction can be found at www.uwrfcoltsale.com

Visit Stalls 238-242 in the Horse Barn during Expo to see and learn more about the colts in training program.
