Over sixty pages of math and science as it’s used in the real world of horses:
Mustang Brands: In this section kids learn about the coding systems used by the Bureau of Land Management and National Park Service to manage herds of some of America’s wild horses.
A Trip to the Tack Store: How do you measure a horse for a blanket? How do you know what size girth or cinch you’ll need? Stirrups come in different sizes—what size is right for you? Images from a tack store show how much these items cost. Kids are asked to make purchases testing their understanding of money and making change.
Horse Science: How many degrees of monocular vision do horses have and how does that compare to our vision? What is a Punnett square and how can you use it to predict a foal’s colour? Did you know there’s a way of using a horse’s Body Condition Score and their height to estimate a horse’s weight?
