Equine Education

DelawareValley University, an open-air classroom with many and varied degrees

DOYLESTOWN, Pa.--Located in picturesque Doylestown, the Delaware Valley University campus boasts more than 500 acres of beautifully maintained land that serves as a real-life, open-air classroom for many of our degree programs.

DelVal 1The Department of Equine Science and Management offers a Bachelor of Science degree in Equine Management, with specializations available in Business Management, Instruction and Training, and Media and Communication, and a B.S. in Equine Science with a specialization in Breeding, and additionally, an Associate’s Degree in Equine Studies.

DelVal 2All equine students have the opportunity to handle, ride, train, manage, and breed horses, as well as assist in foaling management, neonatal care, event management, and young-stock handling and sales throughout their academic career.

As a British Horse Society approved facility and testing center, DelVal faculty members find that employers in the industry appreciate the hands-on experience and quality of graduates we send into the industry.

On-campus Equestrian and Breeding Centers are just a short walk from the residence halls.

The study abroad program with Hartpury College in England is a unique opportunity for Equine students, as well.

DelVal 3The riding skills classes that Equine students take as part of their curriculum help to improve both flatwork and jumping skills, developing well-rounded, marketable employees for the industry.

Another highlight of DelVal is the many co-curricular activities offered for Equine students. The DelVal riding teams (hunt seat, western, and dressage) are nationally ranked and have students from all majors.
