Best MOOC ever! I've taken a lot of MOOC courses, Coursera and others, but this has been the most fun I've ever had learning. And I learned more than I thought was possible without having equids myself. I never do assignments but these were fun and educational. Well Done !!!!!

This course was awesome. I would have loved to learn more about all the different types of horses in more detail but understand there is a lot of information to cover. As a first time horse owner I am so grateful to have been through this course. Thank you so very much :-)

This is a really comprehensive course with very clear information. There are assignments which really make you think about how you care for your horse. I've completed horse care course before, which have been face to face classes but this has been the best one by far.

This is a great course and has helped me to learn things I have been looking for but growing up in the city it is hard to find horse classes you can take and people actually know what they are teaching you. Thank you for this class. I hope to see more horse classes.

This is a great introductory course! It covers a huge range of topics and provides suitable detail for each. The tutor is very enthusiastic and engaging. There are so many useful resources recommended on top of the lectures, quizzes and small assignments required.

Great course! I really enjoyed the material and the instructor. The only criticism I have, and it's only a slight one, as they did try to address some of this, but I feel like some of the care information is outdated, specifically on vaccines and deworming.
par Laura L•
The class was very informative. As a beginner in the equid world I validated each weeks lesson with some experienced horse people. They were very impressed with the depth and breath of the information.
Many thanks to the UF team for putting this together.

Excellent course; the presenter was very knowledgeable and very easy to listen to. I learned a lot! He did a great job of laying out the course in enough details to establish a good background for horse care and management without being overwhelming.

Absolutely fantastic course. So much content is covered but we still manage to delve quite deeply into each topic and make it interesting. Professor Mortensen's enthusiasm is amazing and very contagious, and a huge reason why this course is outstanding!
par Jessica L•
Such a great course! Professor Chris Mortenson, did a fantastic job really explaining and was very active with discussions. I hope in the future, he will extend the course or start a new course that is equine related. Overall, a really great course.

I absolutely loved this course. I am new to horsemanship and was curious when I saw the horse course offered on Coursera. I thought I might learn something new, but never imagined it would be so interesting and packed with information.

I love this course. I already had horses before I decided to enroll but because of this course I understand more about the equine than I knew before. I totally recommend this course to whom wants to learn more about their equine fr

Interesting course, and good for those who own equines. It is valuable in learning basic health, nutrition, training, and the history of the horse. This course also goes into parasite control, and basic pasture management as well.

It is a really good course, as a student of veterinary medicine it helped me a lot to complement my training as a professional. It provides basic tools, but very complete and with scientific support. I totally recommend doing it!
par Kristina S•
Очень интересный, наглядный курс. Я ветеринар и для меня этот курс был важным и необходимым в повышении квалификации. Хотелось бы, чтобы в курсе больше было о болезнях лошадей и лечении.
Я благодарна преподавателям данного курса.

As a beginner's course, this is a wonderful and informative overall introduction to equines, particularly horses. The structure and content is more than adequate, and the lecturer's style makes it easy to learn and stay focused.

I'm a new horse owner. I've taken this course multiple times. It is the BEST introduction to being a responsible horse owner that I have found. I can't say enough good things. Even the content that didn't apply to my situation
