Equine Science B.Tech.

Western riding students and their horses

Turn your lifelong passion into a marketable career path.

If you have always loved and cared for horses (or even if you have just dreamed about them!), our Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech.) degree program in equine science will open the path for you to work in many equine careers while concentrating on horse breeding, training, nutrition and management.

The program allows you to specialize in one of five concentrations:

  • Equine science and management (hunt seat, western, or draft concentration)
  • Breeding management
  • Racing management (harness racing or thoroughbred racing)
  • Equine rehabilitation and therapy
  • Equine business management

Whatever your choice, you will get to work one-on-one with a selection of more than 350 horses on site while experiencing some of the finest equine facilities in the country.

SUNY Morrisville’s state-of-the-art Equine Rehabilitation Center (ERC) showcases the college’s signature equine facilities. One of few publicly accessible equine rehabilitation facilities in the Northeast, the ERC offers equipment and rehabilitation techniques to keep healthy horses conditioned, and to help injured equine athletes recover post-injury or post-surgery.

Additional equine facilities include the SUNY Morrisville Equine Breeding and Training Center, which serves as a breeding and hunter/jumper facility, as well as the Equine Center, which features the nation’s only half-mile harness racing track on a college campus.

During your senior year, you will receive real-world, hands-on experience in the industry through a full-semester, 15-credit internship or by participating in our unique international student exchange program.

Enhance your college experience even further by joining any one of our numerous student clubs, such as Collegiate FFA or the Livestock Club, or come try out for the Western or Hunt Seat equestrian riding teams.
