The Colby Community College Horse Program hosted Darin Henry and Tarrah Stuart of Mountain Shadow Carriages on May 8-9 at the college farm.  Henry and Stuart, Windsor, Colo., taught the students about draft horses and ‘driving.’

“The students learned to line drive, drive a single on a cart and drive a team hitched to a wagon,” said instructor Shanda Mattix.  “It was a great learning experience.  Most of our students have little knowledge of this segment of the equine industry so it was a great way for them to learn more.”

The clinic was paid for with funds from the Perkins grant.
