Potential undesirable impacts on soil, water, and air, as well as human and animal health, can be managed or avoided with thoughtful action.  This presentation will highlight how to recognize the environmental risks on your farm to not only address the problem, but also create opportunities for natural resource stewardship, improving the sustainability of horse ownership.
