Enter the California wilderness on horseback for these two courses presented by the University of California, Davis.

Join UC Davis Continuing and Professional Education on two 2019 exciting outdoor adventures that take participants into the California wilderness on horseback. Past participants have acclaimed these courses “an outstanding adventure” and “a once-in-a-lifetime experience.”

Mustangs: A Living Legacy

Track wild horses and relive the Old West in the seldom-visited Pizona area of Inyo National Forest. From a central meadow camp, riders track mustangs in their natural pinyon forest habitat and learn the social behavior of the horses and their current struggle. This program is a special opportunity that combines a rustic outdoor adventure and a unique educational experience in exploring the biology, ecology and behavior of a proud and beautiful animal—the North American wild horse.

This course takes place June 8–11 at a cost of $900.

Mountain Horsemanship: Veterinary Care and Horsepacking in the Wilderness

This deluxe, seven-day pack trip covers the essentials of horsepacking in the wilderness—with the Golden Trout Wilderness of the High Sierra as your laboratory. The instructor will discuss equipment, emergency veterinary care, feeding and managing livestock in the backcountry.

This course takes place July 14-20 at a cost of $1,625.
