Therapeutic Horsemanship Minor

Equestrian Center EntranceA unique program for a truly unique education

Because of its many health benefits and applications, therapeutic horsemanship is an excellent minor that complements a variety of degree paths, including special education, education, nursing, pre-veterinary science, psychology, physical education and exercise science.

Students are introduced to the challenges, routines, skills and dispositions associated with therapeutic equine care and management, as well as the basics of riding and communicating with a mounted, therapeutic horse. Advanced classes will focus on the working knowledge of therapeutic horse anatomy and physiology, and courses will feature hands-on participation in programs. Students even have opportunities to plan, teach and evaluate programs.
