Please help me locate online equine programs

I am desperate to find some online college programs. I am not a fresh out of high school student, but instead been in college for a while, swapped my major way to many times and all because everything around me is not what I want to do. I want to work in the equine industry and I would rather get a degree in some form dealing with horses, rather then take some major I am not interested in. I have already wasted so much time and money and frankly I am sick of throwing it all away. I know of two schools in Oregon with equine programs, but flat out they are to far to travel and don't offer online programs. I would be happy with a 2 year or 4 year degree. I am interested in many areas so please keep the info coming! Thanks for the help!

Get a business degree, learn about horses from a library book

Just a piece of advice - horses are a very hands on thing. You can buy all the books in the world and it flat out does not compare to actually doing it. I'm sure you could find a horse degree online somewhere but consider that they're already not highly valued as a hands on program - an online horse degree would be even less valued.

Animal Husbandry degrees are very hands on for a reason. Would you hire a vet who'd only done on-line coursework to graduate? I sure wouldn't!

I understand hands on is important, and I would love to get hands on, but I'm in no position to pick up and move at least 2 hours. I plan on attending the bend Oregon cascade equine school- this is non-accredited and strictly teaches things like training, trail instruction and so on. I figure it's better then nothing at all. But if I could get an equine business degree I would be much better set up. I have looked into one school that is online- business degree with an emphasis is equine studies. You basically do a 4 year business degree and all equine classes are on nutrition, equine laws, and things along those lines where you don't have to be actual hands on. I KNOW again that it is NOT the ideal route, but I'm working as best I can with what I've got.

Check out University of Guelph, Ontario online Equine courses, some are expensive, but well worth it. Good luck!

With all of the train wrecks that are hooves on this forum, If your back and your mind can do it I would go to farrier school. I have learned that I am very spoiled living in an area that, the best of the best are 20 min away. There are a lot of areas in this country that need good farriers.

No my sister is, She has a business outside of Aspen, CO. She is very good, she mostly does corrective shoeing working with vets now. I think she does very well for herself and does a lot of iron work on the side. She made someone in Aspen an entire staircase for their house. She did Cher's horses once when her regular farrier was out of town.

You can learn both shoeing work and trimming, and be the best of both.

My cousin is also a farrier, but, I wont let him touch my horse.
