Horses: New Hampshire Agriculture in the Classroom

By Jen Risley (January 20, 2013)

Agriculture in the ClassroomFrom NH Agriculture in the Classroom: Food For Thought E-Newsletter

Equine operations in New Hampshire have a value of about $50 million, one of the highest sectors of our local agriculture.  There are more than half a dozen different organizations dedicated solely to horse promotion and education in the state (see the resource listing). The University of NH offers both two and four year degrees in Equine Studies.  Horses are used for many things including pleasure riding, racing, police work, farm work and therapeutic purposes.
