Careers in the equine industry are diverse in nature and requirements. There are positions requiring considerable versatility; in a small privately owned facility with only a few employees, for example. Other positions are more specialized and are generally found in large, elaborate operations. Some students are in line to take over a family business; others are hoping to start a business of their own.
Regardless of your situation, the skills learned at the Woods will serve you well in acquiring a position in your chosen field. In addition to horse care and management, Equine Studies students improve and enhance their computer, business, and communications skills. Students with the ability to train horses and instruct riders are highly sought after.
