In academic classes of the Equine Science program of Johnson & Wales University, you’ll study anatomy, physiology, nutrition, genetics and diseases, and gain practical knowledge of lameness assessment, ration analysis and preventative herd health programs.
In labs, you’ll practice horse handling and the medical and farm management skills that are necessary for success in the equine industry. You’ll also have the option of taking riding classes through electives.
You’ll begin by learning to design a health plan that addresses the interaction between nutrition and disease, and predicts the needs of different classes of horse.
You’ll identify and analyze equine behavior and apply well-chosen management and handling practices to positively impact horse growth, development, training and health. You’ll also evaluate the impact of various international influences on the equine industry.
Plus you’ll have the opportunity to participate in a variety of extracurricular equine activities, including seminars and clinics with nationally recognized speakers from the equine industry, and annual field trips to Equine Affaire and regional breeding farms.
Some professions may require additional study, background checks, certifications, licenses, exams and/or experience as required qualifications for employment. Students are responsible for verifying that they can meet the employment requirements of potential employers.
