Lifecycle of the Horse
Workshop Series

The Lifecycle of the Horse Workshop Series is a seasonal roundtable experience designed to provide education and inspiration, as well as spark conversation, about a variety of equine topics. Both the aspiring “green” horse lover and the lifelong horseman (or woman!) can come together, enjoying friends and food, as we navigate the different areas of care, work and life associated with having horses in our lives.

Wednesday Evenings • 5:30-7:00pm
Hosted by Rocky Creek Ranch and The Discovery Trail
Snow Creek Road | Statesville, NC 28625
Easy access off I-77, comfortable indoor/outdoor facilities!
Light refreshments will be served!

Cost: $10 per adult or $25 per family/car-load (3 or more)*
Your donation directly benefits the therapeutic programs of Equuvation and The Discovery Trail.

The workshops are open to ANYONE who has an interest in learning more about horses. You do not have to own horses to attend. A great series for parents of horse-crazy kids!

At each workshop, attendees will also receive take-aways that provide barn hack and DIY ideas, templates for record-keeping and business planning, contacts for equine professionals in our region, and much more!

Check back often to see updates on workshop content and guest speakers! Please RSVP via email or individual event listings on Facebook (see links to the left)!


Created and curated by Equuvation, these workshops are part of an ongoing educational experience that fully explores the Lifecycle of the Horse – from breeding to birth, weaning to handling, early training, “first job,” competitive careers, daily care, change in ownership, injuries, retirement and death. Discover how our human interaction with horses has changed the timeline and cycle of these animals, and how we can do a better job of caring for their natural needs – physically, mentally, socially and emotionally.

Also coming in 2018 – Summer Empowerment Series - a mini “internship” opportunity for anyone interested in learning hands-on how to operate farm equipment, produce hay and build trail systems. Keep an eye on our web site for more information.
