The Nexus Equine Spencer Project is a program with a major emphasis on education. It is estimated that over 40% of residents in Spencer are horse owners. This project will provide multiple educational opportunities to both youth and adults on proper care, safety and housing of horses. Provision of some resources will be available for fencing, housing, hay, supplies and tack to assist owners in retention of their horses. Nexus will work with the City of Spencer to facilitate these learning opportunities and care clinics with the goal of increased participation, engagement and trust. Specific clinics will consist of veterinary clinics for vaccines, de-wormer, illness and microchip, farrier clinics and hoof care, and horsemanship clinics to educate on proper handling and behavior as well as development of riding skills.
