Last Updated: 1/4/2019 1:55 PM

Students enrolled in the Agricultural Sciene II course have been learning in the Tool Sharpening and Reconditioning Unit the importance of proper maintenance of tools and other equipment.  Students have the opportunity in this unit to learn leather reconditioning as they apply their k nowledge to saddles.  Students were provided saddles from the EOS Therapeutic Riding Center in Bloomsburg, PA.  This project will assist not only the students but also the riding center as they obtain the ability to receive cleaning of their saddles at no cost to the program.

Zach Smith (10th grade) and Allee Swisher (12th grade) work together in reconditioning a saddle strap.
