In 1986, New Horizons developed the first comprehensive home-study program that now includes over forty courses. This innovative program provides students with a working knowledge in equine science without the hassle and expense of on-campus study. A broad range of subjects is included, such as nutrition, reproduction, anatomy, first aid, breeding, genetics, stable management, psychology, behavior, trailering, and training—to name just a few. The success of this unique program is largely due to the individual feedback the students receive.
