What will I learn?
Horses have a unique role in Wyoming’s tourism and recreation industries among others. Management of equine facilities is critical to the success of businesses in areas such as horse boarding, training and recreation.
LCCC's equine program is hands-on, teaching students practical skills including:
- Equine growth, development, reproduction and nutrition
- Business and management for the equine industry
- Horse training and behavior
This program includes an equine internship.
The Equine Management 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. Students will gain knowledge and skills necessary to prepare them for an internship in their chosen field, which will ultimately prepare them for work in the equine industry in careers such as managing a horse boarding, training or recreation facility.
