Equine Visit Event

Asbury University offers a unique opportunity for high school students who have an interest in Equine Studies. The Equine Visit Event is a chance for students to become familiar with Asbury's Equine program, no matter your experience level.  Whether you've been riding for years or just have an interest in the business, this event will help you get a better understanding of the program. 

During the Equine Visit Event you'll attend Equine classes, meet with Equine Professors, connect with current Equine Studies students and hear from Guest Speaker Kim Meeder (check out her bio and website here).
