Equine Training Management, AAS

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs by Pathway

The Equine Training Management AAS builds upon the one-year credit diploma in Equine Training and further prepares students for work in the equine industry with an option to pursue a bachelor’s of applied science program. Students learn equine anatomy and physiology, nutritional requirements based on performance needs, horsemanship, equine training techniques, and entrepreneurial and communication skills. Admission to LCCC does not ensure admission to the equine training management program; a supplemental program application and horseback riding proficiency tryout is required.
