We provide our 400+ undergraduate students a variety of options with six areas of interest: pre-vet/pre-grad, equine science, business management, food science, animal production, and animal biotechnology. These options allow students to gain industry specific experience for a wide variety of animal-related careers.


  • *Due to COVID-19 and the closure of campus all animal barns are currently closed to the public until further notice*

  • Canceled - Connecticut Horse Symposium

    Protecting the health and well-being of our audience is a primary concern of our extension programs. As a result, we have decided to cancel the CT Horse Symposium for this year. The clinician, Rebecca Howard, has agreed to return next year and so have many of the people giving our demonstrations including Hands On Horse Science. Our new date will be Saturday March 27, 2021. Please mark your calendars and hope to see you there! Stay safe!
