Georgetown College Equine Scholars Program

The Equine Scholars Program at Georgetown College is a professional development program for students interested in pursuing a career in the equine industry. Non-breed and non-discipline specific, our students learn about the industry through a holistic lens while developing a foundation of professional skills to help them thrive in their chosen field.

Georgetown College is located in the heart of Central Kentucky, just seven miles from the Kentucky Horse Park, enabling our students to connect with top-tier professionals in the “Horse Capital of the World” through tours of area farms and businesses, on-campus guest lecturers, internships, volunteering, and more.

Unique in approach, the Equine Scholars Program empowers students to pursue an academic degree of their choice while teaching them how their interests in the classroom can connect to a career within the equine industry. Students may choose from any combination of the 40-plus majors and minors offered at Georgetown College while having the flexibility to change their major and remain in the Equine Scholars Program.

Field experience is integral to career success. Equine Scholars have the opportunity to connect with the local equine industry through job shadowing, interning, and volunteering, allowing them to develop a better understanding in areas of the industry unique to their personal interests and goals while gaining valuable professional connections.

With dedication and commitment from the horse industry, we offer highly sought after real-world experiences that prepare students for life after graduation. Our alumni have successfully pursued careers in all facets of the equine industry: as riders and trainers, veterinarians, business executives, PR and media consultants, educators, event managers, and more. Preparing with experience makes a difference!

Invest four years in the heart of horse country to learn where your talents, interests, and passion connect.
