Internships & Scholarships in Equine Science

Internships are intended to give students the opportunity to experience work in their field of study, and to prepare them for life after graduation. It often gives students access to equipment and experiences that may not be available on Otterbein’s campus.

The faculty of the Equine Science Department at Otterbein University strongly recommends that the students take advantage of any internship opportunity made available to them. An internship may be the contact that gets your career off the ground. Many students have found that an internship can turn into a job, even before graduation. Our students have interned with Dressage Today, Interscholastic Equestrian Association, Rood and Riddle Equine Hospital, Med Vet, and Gluck Equine Research Center to name a few.
