Marin, can you tell me why you selected to study in the Equine Care & Management Diploma program?

"I wanted a well-rounded equine education and I liked the academic program outline. The REACH Huron facilities were amazing to learn in. My instructors and the teaching barn staff had diversified equine backgrounds."
