Unit Standard 4: 25003


The third unit standard you will be working on is unit 25003, Identify horses' anatomy and conformation. You can download the unit standard here .

This unit standard is at level three, and is worth four credits. There are two assignments required to achieve this unit standard.

The reading and study for these assignments are primarily self-directed. You are expected to use the library and the internet to learn as much information as you can. You can also ask adults you know such as pony club instructors, coaches, employers etc.


Reading One: Different breeds for different uses
Reading Two: 4-H Conformation Project Manual (This manual is in more depth than the unit but is a wonderful resource for the future.)

You are expected to use your own knowledge to answer the questions, to look for answers online, and to ask experiesnced adults whom you may know.

You can download your assignment and print it out if you wish. Your assignment may be handwritten or done on the computer according to your own preference or your school's recommendation.
