The Animal, Dairy and Veterinary Sciences department is cultivating the healing qualities of the equine and human bond by providing community engaged learning opportunities for students through USU Equine Experience community programs. The Equine-Human Science courses provide our students with a strong professional education in the core principles of facilitating equine experiential learning, therapies, and recreation. Students gain hands-on learning experiences with horses as well as exposure to current research and industry best practices.

Our program is a member of both the Certified Horsemanship Association (CHA) and the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International (PATH, Intl.) and abides by strict guidelines for safety and effectiveness. We also support UHEAN AmeriCorps student positions.
