    I am assuming you are referring to Olds equine college? I agree with you there, I know of dozens of people through the years that have taken some sort of classes through there, either it riding, stable management, grooming, and NONE of those people ever made a career out of it, maybe a job here and there, but nothing that lasted.

    OP, here in my province, to be an equine chiropractor, you have to be certified. The chiro I use and have know for decades, teaches this and massage and is accredited and has the authority to certify her students. She also has them apprentice with her as part of her program. I think her course is around $6000 to $7000, but being one of her students in this province, you are golden, you won't have trouble finding clients.

    Equine Science degrees are for people who are already established in the horse industry and are expanding their knowledge, for a tax write off. That's it.
