Equine Science Majors and Minor
Requirements for all Equine Science Majors
All equine science students attend three scheduled practicum classes to increase proficiency in a variety of areas. Topics include novice bandaging, wound care and medical bandaging, forage evaluation, tractor maintenance, injection techniques, jump course design, body condition scoring, horse trailer driving, and career opportunities in the equine industry.
By special permission, upper-level preveterinary medicine students may also attend the "Medical Rounds" Practicum at The Ohio State University University of Veterinary Medicine.
A service-learning project is required of all majors. Students have the opportunity of working with physically or mentally challenged riders, 4-H groups, inner-city children, animal humane societies, or groups requiring knowledge of safe horse handling.
All students in the Department of Equine Science participate in designated equine activities with which Otterbein University is associated, such as horse shows, clinics, and guest lectures.
Some Equine Science courses require an additional class fee. See the fee schedules on the Business Office site.
A minimum grade of C- is required in all the required courses for each major. If a grade lower than C- is earned, the course must be repeated in order to enroll in subsequent courses.
