Since our campus is a working 200-acre horse farm, our students have the access they need to the herd and the equipment to gain valuable skills in equine rehabilitation. Also, our close proximity to hundreds of equine operations give our students the advantage of getting internships and employment near campus to help build their skills and resume. Ours is truly a hands-on program where students are in the barns and with horse each day in addition to the classroom work.
