How Do You Get A College Scholorship?

I was wondering how do you get a college scholorship with horses. Do you win prizes? Do you get reconized by judges or something? Or can you not get any scholorships with horses? Please clear this up for me... Thanks!

You need to check out various organizations and see what scholarships are being offered. What college were you looking at attending. Contact them & find out they know of any scholarships are being offered to their school. After you find which scholarships are being offered, you have to meet the criteria. Example could be a certain grade point average & have competed in high school rodeo. Or like our riding club, we offered a scholarship of $1000 to a student who competed & belonged to our club with a B average.

It depends on what university. I know for a fact that New Mexico State requires you to ride in at least 4 rodeo's and have at least a B- average

I would talk to the leader of the equestrian team. This week I am going to be trying out for an equestrian team and talking to her about scholarships. I've known people who have gotten full ride through the equestrian team!

With this college, a LOT of it has to do with how you ride and how you handle riding new to you horses (the team shows give you a random horse you have never ridden before, no warmup even, and throw you into the ring whether you do pleasure, horsemanship or even jumping!)

I got a scholarship through winning horse judging competitions with my 4-H group. I know several breed associations offer scholarships to their youth members. You can probably find more information on the association's website. Also through the equestrian team, but it would have to be a NCAA team for you to get a full ride.

It worries me a little... but it's my only way to keep horses in my life while I'm in college. Plus they test out the horses beforehand so you don't get any crazies

It really all depends on your skill and knowledge level and your horse's skill level..There are many, many different programs you can get into the help you toward a scholarship but it's going to be extremely hard work..Most of the best ways to get a scholarship is to go through sources such as 4H and showing in a breed show, such as AQHA..I think you have to have quite an extensive showing career and winnings to qualify for all of the big schools such as UGA or another large university.

This is a great website for you to take a look at and see what you need to do to prepare yourself and your horse..

This the University of Georgia application.. Just as an example.

Narrowing down what a boarding fee would be is VERY hard, it all depends on what region, school level, and IF you even get a scholarship...And if I'm not mistaken some colleges are iffy about letting you board your horse in the college stable if you aren't a member of the equestrian team.
