LOGAN, Utah (AP) -- Utah State University will break ground this week on a new facility to house the school's growing equine science and management program.
The $8.7 million Equine Education Center will be finished by early summer of next year. It will cover 26 acres and will include horse stalls, an indoor arena and room for expansion.
The university's undergraduate program in equine science and management prepares students to work in stable and horse management.
Enrollment in the program has jumped from 22 students to 56 and is expected to grow to 150 students once the center is complete.
All USU students will be able to take academic and riding courses at the facility.
