Equine Care & Basic Riding

If your horse sense tells you not to spend too much time in college before getting into the workforce, consider getting a Equine Care & Basic Riding Skills Certificate. It takes a year or less but can give you a serious leg-up in the job market. 

This certificate can also be earned simultaneously by students enrolled in the Equine Business Management or Equine Riding and Training programs.
