The Equine Training credit diploma prepares students for work in the field of equine training and management. Students will gain an overall understanding of equine anatomy, physiology, nutritional needs, and proper evaluation of a horse. Invaluable horsemanship skills in a variety of disciplines, including starting a colt under saddle are learned. Students will gain knowledge and skills necessary to prepare them for their internship in their chosen field which will ultimately prepare them for work in the equine industry. Admission to LCCC does not ensure admission to the equine training CD program; a supplemental program application and horseback riding proficiency tryout is required.
Contact information is available on the Equine programs website.
Upon successful completion of this program, students will be able to:
- Identify the appropriate academic and technical skills required for problems faced in the equine training industry.
- Demonstrate the appropriate training techniques to control, correct, or modify equine behavior.
- Associate equine symptomatic presentations with potential equine disease processes by applying equine physiological principles.

If students choose to transition to another program within the Ag & Equine pathway, they should be particularly aware of the choice points that indicate when a decision to branch off into another program must be made to ensure credits and time are not lost.
Coursework common to all degrees within this pathway is indicated by CAC, Common Academic Coursework, in the program map.
