^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.
