| B) Work Experience Hours |
All applicants require a minimum of 150 hours of substantiated work experience in an equine related operation other than one owned by immediate family. Club and clinic participation is not considered to be work experience.
You asked if this would be a waste of your time... IMHO the above means yes. If you already have work experience why wouldn't you continue building on that instead of paying for college? I think in most areas of the industry people consider work experience more valuable than schooling. Just my thought.
