Beyond the Classroom/Equine

UC Davis Extension’s personal enrichment courses let you go beyond the classroom to explore your passion. Learn about the diversity of birds in Northern California or how to identify native plants. Discover the basics of beer making and wine appreciation. Gain practical experience in running a successful horse show. Travel into the Sierra Nevada for a breathtaking horsepacking trek, where you'll learn how to care for horses in the wilderness.

Plus, our  instructors provide the kind of guidance and inspiration that make learning a pleasure. We hope you enjoy your experience!
