BC College of Equine Therapy

Official notice of changes to BC COLLEGE EQUINE THERAPY!

Dave Collins, our president and owner is retiring!  September, 2017 will be our last student intake for our two year program. If you were thinking of attending our College in the future, that time has arrived.  Please submit your application immediately as the student selections for the September, 2017 class is in process.

What does this mean for our students, graduates and our equine friends?

He will still be available to assist and support the students and graduates of our college for years to come.  Thank you to all our students, graduates and general public for all the support and knowledge you have given our college since 1994!  It has been an amazing journey… which is still in progress!
