St. Andrews Equestrian Program

At St. Andrews, we are extremely proud of our diverse and unique catalogue of majors.  At the forefront of this is our Equestrian program.  This line of study equips our students with the skills and knowledge needed to succeed in many equine related careers from barn owner/manager, professional rider/trainer, veterinary school, therapeutic horsemanship, horse show management, or instructor.

Participating on our nationally recognized riding teams helps prepare our students for professional careers within the industry.  We offer opportunities for all riders to increase their skills whether in hunters, jumpers, dressage, western horsemanship, or reining.  Many of our students participate in more than one riding discipline while at St. Andrews.
