The Certificate in Equine Studies is designed for individuals from various backgrounds who wish to improve their knowledge of equine management and reproduction. The program is designed to cater to the needs of each individual, from beginners with no horse experience, to equine professionals who wish to strengthen their equine credentials.

Currently there is no program providing further education about equine management and reproduction available to the horse-owning public in Maine. As a result of this lack of information, horses, and their owners, frequently suffer unnecessary economic and physical hardship. The University of Maine now has the expertise available to correct this deficiency by offering this Certificate in Equine Studies through Animal and Veterinary Sciences and the Division of Lifelong Learning.
