Recreation: Equestrian Option – Performance Track

BS (33-35 hours plus 11 hours in co-requisites)

The Recreation: Equestrian options give a solid foundation for students preparing to enter the equestrian venue as professionals in teaching, training, facility management, and related careers. Through academically rigorous courses and expert instruction on top-class school master horses, students are equipped with a broad base of knowledge in classical horsemanship. Classes encompass theory and philosophy, riding, the teaching of riding, and care of the horse. In-depth studies, opportunities to study with world class clinicians, and riding in competitions cultivate Christ-like character in students, enabling them to become effective scholar-servants.
