Equine Studies/Equine Business Management Programs

We recommend students enrolled in an Equine degree program attend Session 4.

This session will include placement testing for all Equine Business Management/Riding majors and any other Equine major who would like to take riding courses or participate in one of our two horseback riding teams (IDA and IHSA).

Equine program attendees should bring riding breeches, riding boots and an ASTM-approved riding helmet for the placement testing at the Center for Equine Studies on day two of the program.

Students unable to attend this session may attend any Arts & Sciences session and will complete riding placement testing in the fall.

Note: While the orientation program ends on day two at noon, Equine Studies and Equine Business Management students attending Session 4 should plan to stay until approximately 3 p.m. that day to complete the riding test.
