Recognizing a need within the equine industry for specific job training programs, education and standards, the University of Guelph has established Equine Guelph, which takes a unique focus on all things equine. It offers hands-on programs at the university’s three campuses (Guelph, Ridgetown and Kemptville) in areas such as Performance Horse Handling, Leadership through Equine- Assisted Discovery, and Veterinary Technology.
For those who want to expand their knowledge but can’t get away, Equine Guelph offers an excellent series of online courses, including their Equine Science Certificate and Equine Studies Diploma. These courses give you an opportunity to learn from some of the industry’s best on topics like behavior, nutrition, genetics and environment. equineguelph.ca
