Enhance Your Training
As you continue into your second year in the Western Equestrian Program, you are provided the opportunity to train an unbroke colt. Staff will guide you through the fundamentals of the training process while allowing you the opportunity to begin to develop your own riding program. You also have the chance to experience working with a 'client' through our Send Your Horse to College(SYHC) program. Our SYHC program invites horse owners to send their horses to our campus to be trained over the course of the academic year.
