The colts in training program is unique to UW-River Falls. Students spend 90 days working and training their assigned colts under the supervision of Animal and Food Science Lecturer Nathan O’Connor. The class focuses on training methods that have evolved from renowned trainers.

After extensive preparation and hard work, all of the colts develop strong fundamental skills and are ready to excel in any direction. Students learn to communicate effectively as trainers and are responsible for the care of their horses throughout the course. They also gain knowledge of the equine industry through proper marketing and representation of their sale colts.
