Day 4

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?
