The University of Hawaii-Hilo. Currently offers a Certificate in Equine Science. The Hilo Campus has been working steadily in very recent years to expand its Equine Prrogram. The campus has been developing a a 110-acre site and plans include an Equestrian Center.

The University has just recently cleared and planted horse pastures, fenced the rodeo arena, and is constructing an equine surgery facility. See: Hilo Development Plan. As this equine program grows and develops, it offers many opportunities for horse-people in Hawaii to step-up their involvement. This will be the central site in Hawaii for equine education in the future and the many Hawaii Horse Associations can provide assistance and support in many ways.

A good, general source of information about Hawaii Horse Associations and shows is Malama-Lio, the Hawaii Horse Journal. The magazine offers links and contact information for Hawaii Quarter Horse, Dressage, Cutting Horse, High School Rodeo and others.


We want to improve this website and offer the information that you need. This is an ongoing work in progress, but let us know your thoughts and post in General Comments under the Discussion Tab.
