Going to college for horse training

I went to college to learn about horse training. I grew up in Maine and had it not been for a challenge from a math teacher I’m not sure I would have learned that an equine career, or college, was even a choice. There are many paths that lead into the equine industry including apprenticeships, working student, assistant trainer or college to name a few.

No matter what path you take one thing is for sure; once you are on your own you will develop your own unique style in handling both horses and the customers they come with.

Check out this interview that I did with The University of Findlay.

Some other blogs I have written on this subject are:
