Do you know a horse's normal temperature range? How much water a horse drinks on average a day? Or how much manure a horse produces in 24 hours (answers a lot of questions about why everyone always seems to be mucking stalls)?
Trivia doesn't have to be trivial. EQUESTrian Cards contain useful information hidden in a game. Much like when Mom hid spinach in the brownies, you like them, and they are 'good' for you.
"Party night for friends..."
"...we just had this in class!"
Here is what you can expect:
Where exactly is the 'near' side of the horse?
Ideally, barn doors should be what measurements?
When galloping, and the horse has all its feet off of the ground, is it inhaling or exhaling?
The long hair on the fetlock and pastern of cold-blooded horses is called what?
In Fox Hunting, what is a drag hunt?
In the tie-down roping event, how many feet of the steer does a cowboy need to tie - 2,3,4,whatever?

"Great for mounted lessons or when we can't ride."
Not just for kids, the varying levels of cerebral challenge in EQUESTrian Cards will pique your interest and expand your knowledge - whether you are a nervous walk-trotter, a seasoned equestrian or an insatiable hippophile.
With 600 questions in Decks 1-6, the questions touch upon equine history, development, care, feeding, grooming, riding, breed characteristics, health, tack, and more. The information is not breed or discipline specific, so if you ride hunt seat or stock seat, ride a paint or a warmblood, the answer still applies.
The best part? They are self-contained and portable! Pack them to the barn, throw them in the car, keep a deck in your tack trunk.
