About Equine Programs
Many colleges and universities today offer equine programs. These Equine Programs may include Business Management, Agri-Business Economics, Equine Anatomy, Accounting, Public Speaking, Computer Courses, Equine Breeding and Reproduction, Business Planning, Nutrition, Pre-Veterinary, and Pasture and Rangeland Management, and will be coupled with English and Western Riding Classes. These courses are taught by faculties containing vast academic experience and many years of riding experience and offer superb opportunities for students interested in the horse industry.
You may be tempted to conclude that you are either too old or too far along in your current career and family responsibilities to undertake a formal 4-year or 2-year college program. Nonetheless, you need to know about these programs. You will learn where resources in your state can be found; who the professors are and what course materials may be available. The college may be close enough that you can audit a particular course. Additionally, these colleges produce newsletters, conduct clinics and specialized programs or seminars, publish books, and provide speakers. Some of these programs will be distance learning programs available online. Finally, many colleges work closely with U.S. Department of Agriculture Extension Services that address issues important to your state. These are great resources for you and you can learn much by taking advantage of them.
