Colorado Northwest Community College is partnering with Zuma’s Rescue Ranch to offer one-year Horse Management or Horse Training certificate programs!! Classes will begin in the Summer Semester of 2009. Financial Aid and Scholarships available through Colorado Northwest Community College.
One of the newest programs at Colorado Northwestern Community College is the Horsemanship and Horse Management Program. The program focus is on natural horsemanship, Equine Business Management, Training, as well as Trail Guiding and Outfitting. The program is designed to teach students more than just proper equitation, but also safety, how horses learn, anatomy and physiology, and how to be effective leaders. This program will help students to become more aware of the reasons for the horses actions as they ride, train, manage, and teach others about horses. Many of the concepts taught in the program will spill over into everyday life.
The Horsemanship and Horse Management Program currently offers one Associates Degree and two certificates at this time.

Also in July 2009, Youth Horse Camp (ages 12-19).
