Surry Community College students studying in the new Applied Animal Science Technology program took a recent field trip to Grassy Creek Farms with James Quick, Lead Instructor. The farm is located in Pinnacle and is owned by Amy Pace, an occupational therapist.
Pace works with special needs kids and offers riding lessons. The students learned about proper grooming and care for horses, common illnesses for horses, and different riding styles.
SCC student participants included: Henry Loque and Grace Bowman; Emma Davis, Georgia Shinault, Areli Jimenez, Jesus Avellaneda, Gracie Brindle, and Katelyn Crabb, all dually enrolled at Surry Central High School; Kendra Warren, dually enrolled at Surry Early College; Montana Goins, dually enrolled at East Surry High School; Lauren Reynolds, Annmarie Bedsaul, Jordan Martin, and Zariah Thompson, all dually enrolled at Mount Airy High School; and Kenley Wells, dually enrolled at Elkin High School.
