Colleges that Offer Equine Management Degrees

First off: I am 26 years old and I already have a BA in English. My ultimate goal down the line is to one day own an Appaloosa breeding farm. I already have my breeding plans written down and such. This won't happen for many years as we need to save up and my hubby needs to retire from the Air Force so that we can settle down in one place. In the mean time, I would like to get as much knowledge and experience under my belt as possible.

I found Delaware Valley College and their program which sounds exactly like what I need although it would be a 2 hour commute and I have a young son. I'd have to work with the college and find out if we could arrange my schedule so that I could go 2 days a week or something. Here is a link to their program. Equine Science and Management Delaware Valley College

I am having trouble finding other colleges that I could attend perferably online or other programs I could do. Any suggestions are welcome. Whatever you suggest can be in any US state because I may be able to get hubby stationed somewhere close by down the road...TIA.

I only know a couple colleges in the Northeast since I was originally looking at that major, I ended up majoring in something else. Johnson & Wales University Providence, SUNY Morrisville, and Cazenovia College, I think there is also Centenary College. I'm not sure if any of them offer online classes, you would have to check their website. You may want to check out a college search website such as collegeboard.com where you can do a search based on major, location, ect.

Equine Guelph-Helping Horses for Life

They offer an Equine Studies Diploma, Equine Sciences Certificate and an Equine Business Management Certificate. I am currently taking the equine studies diploma, slowly but surely.

Hi,
Kudos for going back to school, I am in the same boat and I know looking for schools a second time around can be annoying/intimidating.
Schools with equine management programs that I know of.
Umass Amherst, Morrisville (SUNY), Mount Holyoke College, Mount Ida College and I think tufts, Michigan state, Purdue and possibly PennState. You might have to google around a bit, if the school has a agriculture element or an equestrian team. I don't know how many of them have online classes because usually riding or training is an element of course work. I also know most of the classes are business classes with some information on equine care. Key words that I would look for are equine management, equine studies or equine husbandry. I have heard good things about the Morrisville program; however, I have not been overly impressed by some of the graduates I have met.
The thing you have to remember is that as equine management you are most likely going to end up managing a barn. With that in mind finding barn help is really difficult and so you will end up cleaning a lot of stalls and do so often. Barn management is farming, which means its hard work, long hours and not much money. I just say this because I have seen a lot of people get into equine studies and then get disenchanted with what the job entails. I would recommend working at a barn or talking to a few local barn managers. That way you have an idea of where they went to school (Alumni contacts) and you can find out what they enjoy and what they find challenging about their job.

Post University offers programs as well. They have a foreign exchange program too and will send you to England. But there are quite a few schools available, you just have to look.
