Career & Technical Education Program
Agriculture & Natural Sciences:
Equine & Animal Science
Students studying for careers in Equine & Animal Science learn to care for, train, and manage pleasure, standard bred, and draft horses. Students also learn the physiology and anatomy of equine and animal structures, behaviorism, breeding, and more. Research papers, projects and presentations are a daily part of academic life in the program. Students also travel to a live horse lab several days per week, working with six to eight horses at a local barn to apply what they are learning in class.
Students develop skills such as problem solving, self-directed learning, creativity, teamwork, innovation, effective communication, and critical thinking along with technical skills.
