Join us for 2 hours of an Eno Triangle Pony Club exclusive, amazing, unmounted experience focusing on triaging equine emergencies; primarily colic and lacerations.  This learning opportunity will start in the anatomy lab where skeletal limbs and equine colon specimens will be utilized to gain a hands-on understanding of these medical concerns.  Thereafter, the participants will go on a cage-side "rounds" experience applying their new knowledge to live patients in the hospital!  The day will conclude with lunch at Backyard Bistro.  

Unmounted Clinic Cost is free to members, but space is limited to 15 members!  

Backyard Bistro lunch is at member's expense.
