Equine Studies - Riding and Internship

The Equine Studies concentration courses includes six courses in the B.S. Biomedical Science curriculum. Two of those courses include riding time as the students will be taught basic walk/trot/canter, groundwork, advanced horse care, management, and jumping techniques. Additionally, students will also have the opportunity to perform two courses of internship at various local facilities and/or shadowing veterinarians allowing them to take their learned education and apply into practice.
