About this course
LCC offers three Associate of Applied Science degrees and three certificate options that prepare students for employment in a variety of areas in the equine industry. While these programs are not intended for transfer, some institutions may accept some or all of the coursework toward a bachelor’s degree. Consult with an academic advisor or LCC’s Transfer Coordinator for more information concerning transfer opportunities.
A student may pursue either Horse Training & Management, Barrel Horse Training, or an Equine Business Management program of study. Classroom and practical laboratory experience is provided in both program options. If a student plans to transfer to a four-year institution, he or she may consider an A.G.S. Degree with an Equine Science emphasis (See AGS Agriculture - Transfer).
The curriculum of the HTM and EBM programs are arranged in a sequential series of courses designed to effectively combine theory with practical experience. Therefore, students may enter the program only during fall semester and are expected to progress through the sequence of courses in a two-year period.
