Horse Riding Practicum
The University's Animal Science Department offers a self-improvement, non-credit, extracurricular horse riding program entitled "Horse Practicum". Students enrolled in the practicum program can participate in riding lessons and in the care and management of UConn horses. The Practicum is open to all students enrolled at the University. Although priority for riding is given to Animal Science majors, all students are welcome on a space available basis.
Practicum students may choose from Dressage, Hunt Seat, Polo, Saddle Seat (by arrangement), Trail, Drill and Western. Beginner, advanced beginner, intermediate I & II and advanced classes are offered. Students can ride one time per week ($435), twice per week ($870), or three times per week ($1,305).
The mandatory practicum meeting for spring 2018 lessons will be held on Thursday, January 18th at 7:00 PM in the W.B. Young Building room 100.
Lessons begin on Monday, January 29th.
Payments can be made online (see link below) or in person on Monday, January 22nd in Alena's office in the main horse barn between 9 AM and 4 PM. All registration forms must be turned in to Alena that day as well.
