Equine

Horses are an important part of Utah’s economic and rural heritage.  The Utah State University Equine Teaching and Extension Team supports horse owners throughout the state by offering a variety of educational programs.  The Equine Team is a tremendous resource and asset to Utah’s Equine Industry.  The USU Extension equine programs have been well received throughout the state.  The Equine Teaching and Extension Team hosts many types of clinics throughout the state from evening presentations to multi-day events.  To learn more about clinics and events hosted throughout the year, please go to the left hand side under clinics and view events by month. We welcome the input and suggestions from Utah horse owners on equine programming needs for your club or area. 

A 4 year Equine Science and Management Emphasis was introduced Fall 2007 attracting students from across the country. Ground breaking for the Equine Education Center  took place in October 2009. This will expand and enhance our present program providing two classrooms, office space, student living quarters, stabling for 44 head of horses, large indoor and outdoor riding arenas plus a breeding facility.  Students will have ample opportunities for hands-on exposure to daily horse and facility care.
