Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 30, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta ___Thurtdcy, Manh 30. 1972 THE IETH3RIDGE KERAID 13 Horse courses popular Interest fn courses on horses and horsemanship has been flowing rapidly in Alberta I he past few years. Jack Kerns, livestock spec- ialist with the Alberta depart- ment of agriculture, reports practically every college in the province now offers courses on horse care, horse nutrition and horsemanship. Most of these courses are filled to capacity. For the last three years the University of Calgary has been offering a series of short courses on English an d wos L- ern equitation-' horse reproduc- tion and anatomy; principles Involved in riding and showing; and horses from the artistic point of view, These courses, which have been mainly eve- ning extension courses, have been very popular with mem- bers of the horse fraternity. Similar couses on a smaller scale bnve been, offered by the University of Alberta's exten- sion department. In the fall of 1072 the University's agricul- tural faculty plans to offer a credit course on equine Jogy and nutrition. Under their continuing edu- cation programs, the commun- ity colleges at Lethbridge, Med- icine Hat, Red Deer and Ed- monton are offering a variety of short courses on various aspects of interest to horse enthusiasts. For the second consecutive year the Olds College is con- flicting a farrier's course for pecpTe who want to start their own businesses. Twelve stu- dents arc presently taking this three month course. Five-day courses on hoof care and horse management have been ar- ranged by the Alberta depart- ment of agriculture in various parts of the province. Many city and town educa- tional and recreational depart- ments are becoming interested In horsemanship courses. Ed- monton lias been conducting very popular beginners' courses on horses and horse- manship for several years, Mr. Kerns credits this up- surge of interest in the equine educational field to the general Increase in horse numbers for for purely recreational use on small land holdings through- out the province. During the 1920s Alberta's estimated horse population was over By 1970 this figure had dropped to about it now appears to have levelled off and a slight in- crease can be expected from now on, Mr, Kerns said. There has been a definite increase In the number of light horses and light horse clubs in Alber- ta in the last few years and a email increase of interest in the heavy horse industry. Light horse 4-H clubs are now only outnumbered by beef and clothing clubs. Ir. 1970 Alberta's Arabian end Quarter Horse registra- tions topped those of all other provinces in Canada. The thor- oughbred registrations were second only to those of Ontario. Alberta also had the second largest number of American SnndlebrtxJ and Morgan regis- trations and was very near the top in pony registrations for the whole of Canada and boasts a considerable number of hun- ter type horses, Mr. Kerns said.
