Equine General Studies Concentration in Leadership

The equine world needs great leaders.

There are some people who just seem to light up the room when they walk in. They engage the audience and can capture the crowd. When it comes to the equine industry, these are the people who make big moves in every area. They train. They own their own stables. They find themselves at the top of major players in the equine industry. We created the leadership concentration within the equine general studies major to help you find yourself among these people.

Courses in communication such as small group leadership and visionary leadership, web communication and communication law will provide you with an extraordinary opportunity to cultivate your leadership skills at the same time that you’re building your equestrian skills.

Start using this expertise right on campus as a student leader in many of our equestrian organizations, one for each seat, plus our Intercollegiate Judging Team.
