Our most popular major and one that satisfies pre-veterinary program requirements when combined with the necessary Biology and Chemistry coursework. Facilities management is a popular double major with other Equine Studies degrees.

Classes include Nutrition, Pasture Management, Equine Health, Equine Lameness, and other equine-specific classes along with a range of business courses such as Accounting, Marketing, and Equine Activities Management. Show barn, breeding and boarding barn management, horse show management, and tack store sales and merchandising are common career destinations.

Top Quality Management

This program is designed for the individual interested in providing top quality management of an equestrian facility (boarding barn, competition stable, training farm, sales facility, horse show complex, etc.). Equestrian facility management is an ideal major for the student interested in overseeing the quality care of horses while working with people in a business situation.

Equine Success

Lake Erie College's equine studies program is the first step on the road to success. The broad-based liberal arts foundation that Lake Erie College provides, combined with a major program of study, is the best preparation for any career.

Students will learn to think critically, communicate effectively, and develop a sense of confidence that promotes leadership skills. Students can turn their avocation for horses into a vocation in the equestrian industry.

Interdependent Culture

Many students choose to combine their equestrian interests with studies in the natural sciences, business or psychology, or with preparation for veterinary or graduate school. Additionally, our curriculum addresses the needs of students who will work in a world that is becoming increasingly interdependent, by providing opportunities to learn about peoples and cultures other than their own.

Focus on the Individual

Lake Erie College emphasizes the individual. Our classes are taught by professors, not graduate students. Classes are small, allowing students and professors to know one another. We care deeply about the success, development, and happiness of our students.
