Students in the Equine Studies Program have the opportunity to participate in a semester exchange program with Hartpury College in England. Like DelVal, Hartpury College has a strong agricultural tradition. Furthermore, it is home to a premiere British Horse Society equestrian facility, site of the annual Hartpury Advanced Horse Trials.
This cooperative arrangement provides an excellent opportunity for students wishing to receive advanced instruction in cross-country riding and to prepare for the British Horse Society Riding and Instructor Certification exams. Interested students should inquire about application qualifications and procedures.
