Summer Equine Program Information

Adelante continues to collaborate with a prestigious Scottish college specializing in animal care, agriculture and land-based studies, in order to offer a 4 week summer program in Equine Studies. The campus is on one of the largest college estates, based in the rolling hills just outside the country’s vibrant capital, Edinburgh.

This special four-week summer program is available for animal science and pre-veterinary students, as well as those students who enjoy equestrianism. However, no previous equestrian experience is required. Students will enroll in two courses, Equine Anatomy and Physiology, and Equine Fitness. The achievement of these two units will give you 6 hours of US credit, fully transferable, towards your degree at your home University or College (see your own college advisor for confirmation. A Brief about credit transfer can be downloaded here). Official college transcripts will be given on completion of the program.

In addition to classroom instruction, students will be involved in practical and hands-on experiences, with the opportunity to discover equestrianism ‘British’ style, and experience both classical and English-style riding skills. The program works with the Scottish National Equestrian Centre, so if a professional event is held during the time of the program, students may assist with some preparation. The Centre has one international class indoor arena, a six-furlong all-weather gallop and an extensive acreage of good riding country where they annually host a British Eventing one-day-event. Please note there is a weight limit of 196 lbs to participate in the riding sessions.

Also included in this program are educational visits to several of the main cultural sites of Scotland and the internationally recognized Royal Highland Show.

*Due to limited availability, in all Scotland programs, there is a $500 holding deposit required. You will receive an invoice following your phone interview and this will be due upon receipt in order to confirm your place. The holding deposit is non-refundable.*
