Equine Academy

Inspiring the next generation of equine industry leaders

By combining our rich tradition as a first-class, faith-based educational institution with an incomparable location in the Bluegrass Region of Kentucky, the Equine Academy offers an exclusive blend of educational, practical and extracurricular opportunities for students with a life-long passion for the horse, as well as for those being introduced to the equine world. A non-breed, non-discipline specific program, this is a unique opportunity for students with interests in all aspects of the horse industry. 

The Equine Academy’s primary academic component will be a two-year, equine-related course curriculum.  Additional off-campus, college-level courses, mentorships and research programs will be offered through our partnership with the University of Kentucky Ag Equine Programs.

Students will also experience an extracurricular program, which will offer internships, events, seminars, field trips, job shadowing, service projects and special events.  

Lexington Catholic High School enjoys an expansive network of people, businesses and events in the Central Kentucky equine industry that will be utilized to provide an endless array of real-world experiences unavailable elsewhere in the world.
