Additional Information:

This course is designed to provide an in-depth understanding of the nutritional management and requirements of horses.

Two options are available:

  • A classroom section comprised of lectures, "hands-on" laboratories, mini case studies, and class projects. Class sessions will be held on Mondays and Wednesdays from 12:35pm - 1:55pm on Rutgers Cook Campus in New Brunswick, NJ; OR
  • An interactive online section that combines readings, videos, class assessments, and discussions along with mini case studies and a group project.

This 14-week program is an undergraduate course that is offered on a noncredit basis to horse owners, trainers, feed sales representatives or anyone interested in the topic. The course is appropriate for both novice and experienced horse enthusiasts, though some background in both nutrition and equine science is helpful to excel in the course. If you register as a continuing education student, you will receive continuing education units (3.6 CEUs) rather than undergraduate college credits. Please note that a high school diploma is required and a background in biology and physiology is useful, but not required.

Target Audience: Alumni,  General Public
