I plan on going into the equine industry and was originally planning to go straight into a job or internship, but my parents would like me to consider going to formal secondary education. I don't do well at regular school so I would want to go somewhere that doesn't require gen-eds. I...
Hi there, I'm debating getting my degree in equine sciences.
here's some background; I'm 18, and have been around horses for about half of my life. Originally I wanted to get into barrel racing but I couldn't find a steady teacher that fit my schedule. Now that I'm looking at my future, I want...
I have a greenie that was a recent restart in the last year (9 yo rescue Warmblood/Standardbred mix.) When we started him, we started him Western to get the basics in. I've really taken a liking to dressage instead of jumping. My horse is at a mostly QH barn with some people riding Western...

I've decided this is what I want to pursue, the only problem is I don't know how to pursue it. I have no idea what to major in, like vet sciences or chiropractic services. I plan to attend TAMU college station.
Hi!! I'm thinking of doing an Equine Sciences certificate through the University of Guelph (Ontario) and I was curious about others' experiences with the program or another similar one. I want to do it mostly just for interests' sake, but would definitely consider a career in the Equine industry...
Has anyone ever gone to college to take an equine program? What did you take? Where did you go? Was it worth it? I'm starting in January to work with race horses. Finally after years of college and university I'm going to do something I really want to!
