Equine Laboratory

Colt Training Classes

Two colt training classes (ASci 56 and 57) are offered through the Department of Animal Science and Agricultural Education for students majoring in Animal Science/Equine Science.

Colt training students spend a minimum of three days per week working hands-on with horses. Depending on the age and training level of the horse, and experience level of the students, a colt trainer will do anything from working on ground manners in the barn to working a bridle horse under saddle. 

Students have the unique opportunity to work with professional trainers, learning to handle horses according to the standard of today's industry. With the common goal of raising talented, respectful, healthy horses, the colt training classes are a very beneficial element to our quarter horse program.
