Special requirements:

All students (full or part-time) are required to demonstrate proof of medical insurance, a tetanus booster within the past 10 years, and a tuberculosis test within one year to participate in the equine courses of this major. Rabies pre-exposure prophylaxis immunization is strongly recommended. Students are required to either show proof of rabies immunization or sign a declination form. In addition, students must be able to easily lift at least 50 lbs. since work with horses may require movement of large bales of hay and feed, as well as restraint of 1000 lbs. or larger animals. Appropriate attire will be required for any class visiting an equine facility whether for laboratory or demonstration.

Graduates of this program should be able to demonstrate an understanding of business and management concepts in addition to an understanding and competency in the care of, handling of, and management of horses of all ages and physical abilities.

*Students may test out of EQST1001 with a combination of in-saddle skills demonstration and written examination.  These students will be required to take EQST1002
