On a somewhat unrelated note that I didn't want to start a new post on, does anyone know much about the University of Colorado's Equine Science program? Has anyone gone to the University or know anyone who has? I requested information and looked into their website, but it doesn't offer much info about the program. Any information would be appreciated. I'm looking into possibly going there...

We ride and never worry about the fall, I guess that's just the cowboy in us all.

^I attend the University of Colorado at Boulder. What sort of information are you looking for?

Well, I looked at their page on the website and all it really said was they have a hands on and scientific focus. It doesn't go into if there are riding classes required, what's required to get into the program, things like that. They don't show a list of the classes you would take in the program. Some colleges with equine programs that I've looked into have horses at the school and some require you to bring a horse, but it doesn't specify if you do there or not.

Are you in the equine program or something else? If so, what is their program like?

^I'm in something else.

I'll be honest with you. Equine Studies really aren't the way that I would go. What are you wanting to do with the degree? If you are wanting to be a vet, it's the wrong program. If you want wanting to do something else (breeding, training, etcetera), then this isn't the direction I would go. I would get a degree in business management, and then spend your time working with individuals that are known in the horse community. If you are looking to work with Arabs, seek out a reputable Arab breeder. If you want to teach/compete in Hunter/Jumper, find a proven Hunter/Jumper trainer. This will get you much, much further in the industry, because you will actually be making a name for yourself in the community.

Furthermore, the University of Colorado is an Arts and Sciences school, not really an Ag school. If you are hellbent on an Equine Studies program, I would probably suggest Colorado State University. It is located in Fort Collins and has a fabulous vet program, plus are known for their work with horses. Overall, it is not as good of a school as CU, but it is cheaper and more suited for your purposes.

If you are absolutely gung-ho on CU, then contact them for more information. That is where you will get a list of required classes.

Hey. Just read the whole post. I'm sorry things haven't worked out yet but I'm impressed with how mature and sensible you seem! Good luck with everything and I love your cat's name!

I am her eyes, she is my wings. I am her voice, she is my spirit. I am her human, she is my horse.

I'm sorry, I meant Colorado State.
