The COS Equestrian unit, part of the Animal Science Division, is dedicated to serving the needs of all students interested in furthering their Equine education at the college level. Our division provides educational opportunities for students seeking job skills needed for employment, transferable credits for students who plan on transferring to a university, and opportunities for persons wishing to upgrade their skills to advance in their current jobs. The equine unit prides itself on teaching students through hands on experience giving students the opportunity to learn about basic horse knowledge, colt breaking, and reproduction. In addition, students have the opportunity to become a part of  the women's equestrian team.  The equine unit stresses quality teaching/ learning through formal classroom lecture/discussion methods as well as plenty of hands-on “learn-by-doing” in well-equipped laboratory facilities including an A.I. lab and ultrasound equipment.
