I have explained to numerous people, for the past four years, that I really do have class at the barn – and it never ceases to amaze them. Who goes to school to ride horses? Well, a great deal of us here at The University of Findlay do, and many of us choose to pursue a second major to supplement our equestrian studies major. Although the most common is a business major, my second major is public relations, and between the two disciplines, my life never slows down.
I chose to become a communication and equestrian studies major because I aspire to work in the communication department of somewhere like USEF (United States Equestrian Federation), USDF (United States … Read More »

Welcome back! Classes are in full swing already, but let’s get you caught up on what I did this summer through work experiences and and an internship as a pre-veterinary major.
For the first part of my summer, I had the privilege of working at a sheep farm in my hometown.

Luckily, that wasn’t the case! For the first time in my life, I actually have to make sure my social life doesn’t take up the time in which I should be doing schoolwork. Or sleeping. Sleep is important.
