HORSE owners of all experience levels are being encouraged to attend a Healthy Land, Healthy Horses workshop in Beveridge on Saturday.

The workshop aims to assist horse owners to learn more about planning and changes for both management of their horses and the land.

The course has been designed with equine health, welfare and natural behaviour in mind, and will cover horse property layout, pasture management techniques, manure and worming management.

Mitchell Shire Mayor Fiona Stevens said the workshop would help support the strong equine industry in the shire and surrounds.

“There is a significant equine industry in the Hume, Whittlesea and Mitchell areas that we want to support,” she said.

“This workshop is a great opportunity to learn from an industry expert about how you can improve the lifestyle and care for your horse and at the same time have a higher awareness of impacts on the environment.”

Equine industry personality Stuart Meyers will present the workshop, visiting from England to tour Victoria and present at multiple different workshops in March and April.

The Healthy Land, Healthy Horses workshop will be at the Greater Beveridge Community Centre.

Tickets cost $25 and bookings are essential. For more information, people can visit www.mitchellshire.vic.gov.au/our-region/events/healthy-land-healthy-horses-workshop.
