The St. Andrews University Equestrian program serves the students of St. Andrews University (A branch of Webber International University). The university offers two majors in Business Administration; one with a Specialization in Equine Business and the other with a Specialization in Therapeutic Horsemanship Management. Our Biology Department offers a Biology degree with a Specialized Program of Study in Equine Science.

All students no matter what they are studying are invited to participate in the equestrian program, taking lessons, riding on one of our successful intercollegiate teams, volunteering in the Ride-Like-A-Knight Therapeutic Horsemanship program, doing work study at the barn and becoming a member of Riding Council.

We host Intercollegiate Horse Shows Association (IHSA), Intercollegiate Dressage Association (IDA), American National Riding Commission (ANRC) horse shows as well as Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International (PATH Int.) workshops and conferences. Veterinarian in Residence Dr. Laura Kellam runs a unique pre-veterinarian internship program which is strongly experiential.
