Equine Practice: A Veterinary Perspective

Junior Brinley Thomas has been accepted into Cornell University's Summer College program, Equine Practice: A Veterinary Perspective. Cornell's College of Veterinary Medicine, consistently ranked the number one veterinary school in the nation, accepts only 35 students into this hands-on program to learn about horses from a veterinary perspective. Brinley will study the anatomy and physiology of the horse, breeding, foal care, common illnesses, nutrition, and how to administer equine first aid. Much of this comes naturally to Brinley since she has raised her nine-year-old Tennessee Walking horse, RPM's Harley Baby, since he was one. Brinley's love of horses began at a very young age and she started riding lessons at age four. Brinley was thrilled at the opportunity this program offers and worked diligently to submit transcripts, SAT & ACT scores, letters of recommendations, and three essays with her application. Brinley will earn three college credits as well as a look into majoring in veterinary medicine. Congratulations Brinley!
