Here at CF, we see the importance of hands on learning. In addition to utilizing Vintage Farm, the BAS Equine students will complete three internships specific to their intended career path for immersion in the equine industry. This also helps build connections within the industry our students hope to gain careers in.
The internships are customized to the specific discipline of the candidate. For example, someone interested in equine event planning might intern at an equine show facility, an equine resort and an equine publication. Someone interested in equine bodywork could intern with a massage therapist, at a rehabilitation center and with a veterinarian specializing in performance horses.
This program is designed for students with an associate degree in fields such as agriculture, equine, landscape and horticulture, and animal science.
