Horse College

I am wanting to become a Thereaputic Riding Instructor. What college is the best for that? And one where I can take my horse?

I don't think there is a collage for that, since it is usualy a volenteer position. Look inot the P.A.T.H. Program.

I'm looking for a college that also has equine studies. I know Cazenovia College, Murray State University, Averett University, Meredith Manor, and Centenary College all offer well known equine degrees and programs that allow you to bring your horse as well. I know one of them has therapeutic riding but I can't remember which one... I'd check them all out!

Try a business degree. You can learn all you need about leading horses in circles by volunteering but if you want to make a business work you need business education.

I don't sugest Meredith Manor. It's exspencive and a lot of people have had BAD problems there. Just do a search here and you will find some threads about it. I don't know any thing about the other ones.

I'm going to what my mom calls horsey boot camp. I'll be in extream training for a year. 6 months here in Ocala, then 6 months in London, Canada.

I would think you would want to take classes on working with the disabled and business classes.

Yeah, I've read them, but I know of 2 people that go there and just LOVE it. I think it all just depends on the person! The other ones I suggested are fantastic with really well known programs

Mostly the problem is that it's exspencive, the dorms are terrible and if you hate it and want to drop out, it's impossible to get your money back.

Exactly! I was looking at it and loved it until I saw the living conditions... I consider myself really really low maintenance and can put up with bad conditions, but living in a bus? Like, a school bus? That was just pretty odd to me. I just think it takes a certain person to really have the drive to go through the program. :)

Yup school bus or crates like the kind they use on cargo ships.
