As the horse industry becomes increasingly more global, it is important for today's agricultural students to understand the US horse market and how it intersects with the global economy. Ireland is well known for its horses and is a good example of a country heavily involved in the international equine trade. Students will be able to gain an understanding of international equine travel, trade, events, research and biosecurity. Students will also be able to visit several horse farms and facilities to gain an understanding of how horses are managed in Ireland. Through these experiences and lectures, students will develop an understanding of the Irish horse market and how it compares to that in the United States, furthering their knowledge of the global importance of the equine industry.
During the embedded travel component, housing will consist of overnight accommodations at at hotel/hostel.
The process for enrolling in an embedded course varies according to the instructor and/or department. The program leader has indicated that in order to enroll in the course that all students will need to contact the program leader and an application will be required; interviews will be determined on a case by case basis.
