What is the Tennessee Master Horse Program?


The Tennessee Master Horse Program is an educational program designed to provide a foundation of science-based equine nutrition, management and environmental information applicable to all horse owners and those interested in equine well-being. Using a combination of classroom discussion and hands-on teaching to cover a wide variety of equine-related topics to equip attendees with the knowledge needed to implement best management practices on their operations and improve equine care.

The driving force behind the TMHP is to raise the level of education and improve overall success of horse owners and producers within the state. Additionally, by improving management practices and providing the opportunity for intellectual growth, equine producers and business owners can continue to expand this vital portion of Tennessee agriculture. By providing science-based, objective information families, youth, and the community can generate or continue to build upon their existing knowledge base and ensure success of the equine industry for years to come.
