Imagine horseplay actually being a part of the college curriculum.
At the University of Findlay in Findlay, Ohio (about 40 miles outside of Toledo), it’s a reality, with the equestrian studies program. Students have the option of gaining professional skills either through the English or western discipline programs. Many students add a second major to enhance their marketability, with popular pairings including equestrian and business, among other career paths.
Some focuses include dressage, the sport that gained recent attention with its ties to Mitt Romney, and hunter-jumper, and western equestrian studies students are instructed five days a week in showmanship, horsemanship, and western pleasure.
Students have even offered feedback on the program in College Prowler reviews:
