Equine Studies Minor

Perform Better Than the Competition

Since you were young, you’ve loved working with horses, both on the ground and in the saddle. Continue to help them and develop knowledge and skills that can’t be easily learned in the barn with an equine studies minor from Post University. Coursework can help prepare you for a career as a veterinary assistant/technician, horse trainer, barn manager, riding instructor, or sales or service product representative.

This minor is also a great option for students majoring in science or business. Many of the best local equine operations are owned or managed by our graduates.

Program Highlights
The equine studies minor provides a foundational examination of topics in stable management centered on an understanding of equines and their many roles in human lives. You may select topics for advanced study in any of the broad range of subject areas offered within the equine program. For a total of 16 credit hours, your equine studies minor courses include:

  • Equine Care and Management and Equine Care and Management Lab OR Facility Design and Operation and Facility Design and Operation Lab
  • Equine Anatomy and Physiology
  • One elective at the 200–400 level
  • One elective at the 300–400 level

Unlike other equine studies colleges, Post University gives you a competitive advantage in the equine field, especially in Connecticut. This region of the country offers a level of variety and professional excellence equaled by few others in the equine industry, and we equip our students with the strong academic foundation and practical experience top employers look for in potential employees.

Our Equine Program Director will work with you one-on-one to help you determine the right path within this field, based on your specific interests and professional ambitions. Not all equine studies programs offer this same level of personalized attention and support.
