Educational Program

    The overall Agricultural Industry and especially the Equine sector is
presently in desperate need of skilled workers. With the average age of
horse owners and trainers getting older (the Canadian average is above
50 years old), farms, training facilities and breeding establishments are
searching for younger skilled people. Careers from that of Stablehands
through to Farm Managers need to be filled by English speaking people
with the appropriate skills, education and experience working with horses.

Career Development
    H.O.R.S.E.S. Equine School will provide an extensive educational
program focused on all aspects of horses. This 2-year comprehensive
