Though the idea of learning about horses online seems slightly odd (the equine industry does, after all, lend itself more to hands on, in-person education), there are a myriad of topics and issues that can work well in any educational format. In my recent conversation with Dr. Piper Klemm, publisher of The Plaid Horse magazine (she’s also a professor, author, equestrian, and entrepreneur), we talked about this idea in the context of the courses she’s teaching online this summer (online) in partnership with the folks at Clarkson University.
Here’s our conversation:
Education is always a good thing, regardless of format. Pick up a book, ask a question, log on to a website, take a riding lesson, enroll in a course – it doesn’t matter. The important thing is to acquire knowledge, apply it, and then go out and get some more.
