One of the Premier 
Equine Studies Colleges

The study of Equine Science at Eastern Iowa Equestrian College (EIEC) is a diverse and comprehensive program with something for every horse enthusiast - from the weekend equestrian to the person serious about a career in the horse industry. 

Equine Science College students will work closely with Forest Hill Farms Equestrian Center.


We offer our equine students a program that emphasizes both "hands-on" and classroom learning. Our program will provide:

A foundation in the basics of training, care, management and riding that will qualify students for entry-level jobs in the horse market.

Practical experience that will acquaint students with additional opportunities in the horse industry. Our approach will help to shape educational plans and career goals.

A chance for students to decide if a college degree or a career opportunity best suits their immediate needs. Students may apply their learning in our program directly towards the completion of a degree at Muscatine Community College if they choose to broaden their educational horizon.

Preparatory skills that are required in every aspect of equine industry. Whether students want to be a veterinarian, breeder, barn manager, rider, trainer or instructor. We provide the essential skills and knowledge of horses, how to handle them, and how to understand them that are needed for success.

Individualized attention .
We treat our students as individuals, as names and not numbers. Our reputation stands on your success.

Learning a Trade from a Tradesman.
College faculty and Equestrian Center staff members are all active in the horse business. Thus, students can learn both the theory behind the actual application of a variety of basic principles across the equine business.

Lower cost tuition .
Today, low-cost, quality education is becoming harder and harder to find. With our program, students can move directly from education to the workplace without running up high student loan fees.

Fast Track
Our quarter system allows students to speed up their educational process and lower housing costs and living expenses.
