‘Horsin’ Around’ exhibit at Discovery Center ending later this month

There is still time to check out the Discovery Center’s latest exhibit, Horsin’ Around, before it trots off later this month.

The hands-on exhibit allows participants to explore the horse industry and the science behind caring for these animals. The exhibit offers a variety of activities for children, including a ride on a plushie pony in the corral, becoming an equine vet for the day, and designing their own jockey silks.
