The students enrolled in Wilson College's nationally recognized equestrian programs often can be found in the dirtiest and smelliest learning environments on campus. They prefer it that way. “You're physically working with horses and learning all about them,” said Lauren Kershner, an equine journalism major. “Having the horses here makes it easier to be away from home,” said Rachael Myers, an equine facilitated therapeutics major. Wilson College's equine-related academic programs are among its most popular on campus and enroll 63 students.
