Equine Colleges..

For my career, I want to be a horse trainer and I am very serious about it. Right now I'm only in 9th grade but that's besides the point. I was just wondering what were some good equine colleges for horse training (preferably pretty close to Michigan). Also what are some of the classes that I should take in high school? What type of degree do I need to legally train horses?

I went to William Woods. It's a really good school. In Missouri though.

WWU | Equestrian Science Major

My other option schools I was looking at were Findlay in Ohio and West Texas A & M.

There really aren't classes in most high schools that are horse related. I would recommend anatomy and leadership type extracurriculars. Also business classes if they're offered.

Take lessons and go to shows and get videos! Findlay required a video of you with your application. Also volunteer at riding schools or with trainers for a head start.

And get good SAT scores! WWU is pretty expensive, but they give good scholarships. I was only able to afford it because I had good scores

Thank you! This really helps. I am taking a business class now and I am taking on next year so that is good!
