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.

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 15 credit hours, your equine studies minor courses include:

  • Exploring the Equine Industry or Equine Care or Facility Design and Operation
  • One elective at the 200 level
  • 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.
