For students with an interest in harness or thoroughbred racing, the Morrisville State College Equine Racing Management program can provide direct entry into these exciting fields.

The Equine Racing program emphasizes hands-on participation in the breaking, care, training, conditioning and racing of standardbreds and thoroughbreds. Students work one-on-one with assigned horses.

Upon successful completion of the United States Trotting Association driver/training test and other mandated requirements, students are able to race those horses on the New York county fair circuit or amateur driving events at a local pari-mutuel track.

In addition to the hands-on experience, students are exposed to a core of other equine courses, including Equine Anatomy and Physiology, Equine Health and Lameness, Equine Nutrition, Equine Breeding, Farm and Stable Management, Artificial Insemination, Fitting and Marketing of the Equine and Horse Husbandry.
