Description of Extension and Teaching Responsibilities

My primary focus is to lead the GA 4-H Equine program. Programmatic goals are to facilitate youth development through 4-H equine activities which include the GA state horse quiz bowl, hippology, presentation competitions, and the GA State 4-H Horse show held in Perry, GA. Educational programs to promote safety and horsemanship development target both youth and adult audiences. Educational resources and in-service training target both agent and 4-H volunteer leaders. Having coached nationally successful collegiate horse judging teams, I will teach the equine evaluation class for the Animal Science curriculum.
