Welcome to Day 4
Today we examine safe horse handling. We have a number of activities including working on the first part of the course assignment:
Assignment Part A: Horse Handling Factsheet
Please review the section on this assignment in both the outline and details on day 4 and ask me if you have any questions.
A suggestion to help keep discussions organized – please include either the topic and/or lesson number in the first line of your post (perhaps in bold). That will help to keep discussions a little more stream lined.
And lastly – I had the opportunity to work with one of our sponsors, WSPS, on their Stop Think Act campaign. Essentially, the goal of this concept is to:
- Stop long enough to think about what you’re about to do
- Think about how you’re going to do it. Is it the safest way? If not, how can you do it better?
- Act in the safest way possible
I took part in a video series highlighting – please view:
and another good example related to young farm workers:
Take some time to think about this – can you share a Stop Think Act idea with the rest of the class?
