I went to Colorafo State and am now a breeding manager at a small warmblood facility. I have a business minor as well, since CSU focuses a lot on making you a professional, not just teach you about anatomy. As someone who is in e equine world now, my advice is to go for something BROAD. I think equine science was a great major for me (although I did all the extra breeding and science classes possible to get more out of it) and would absolutely recommend it to someone. By broad I just mean don't limit yourself to one breed or only training young horses or only doing eventing. Learn lots of different things in the horse world so that you are flexible and well rounded. You don't want to get so specific that it's impossible to find a job. Learn how to be good at training, business management, soil and crop management, finance, accounting, equine nutrition, and get experience at many different barns and you will set yourself up for a Lot more success.
