Equine programs, degrees and options are as unique and diverse as breeds of horses. Finding the “right” college and equine program can be challenging. The EQUUS Foundation just made it easier with the launch of its Equine Education Network (EEN).
The EEN is a free online resource designed to connect individuals interested in pursuing studies and/or careers in the equine industry to the educational institutions with the curricula they seek.
The EEN is unique in that it specifically identifies the equine-related program(s) that the educational institution offers and provides a direct link to the program if available. Using the EEN eliminates precious time, often hours, identifying the institutions and searching through an institution’s website to find the programs of interest.
What is also unique about the EEN is the partnership the EQUUS Foundation established with The Right Program for U, an educational consulting firm that specializes in the fields of equine higher education, equine welfare and equine policy.
“The launch of the Equine Education Network to encourage the pursuit of equine-related careers is part of our ongoing commitment to horse welfare,” said Lynn Coakley, EQUUS Foundation President. “The Right Program for U has the professional expertise to ensure that the Equine Education Network stays accurate and offers services for individuals who need additional assistance in matching their equestrian interests with college options and degree offerings.”
