My Horse University (MHU) was established in 2005 at Michigan State University, the pioneer land-grant university with nationally ranked programs in equine science and management. MHU brings research and knowledge from world-renowned experts to online courses and products. MHU’s courses provide a comprehensive and convenient learning experience for horse enthusiasts throughout the world.
MHU was created through a partnership between MSU Extension, the MSU Department of Animal Science, and MSU Global. These roots have branched to include the best of MSU’s equine researchers and practitioners as well as national experts through a partnership with eXtension. MHU provides premier learning experiences in an online format that’s flexible in order to meet your needs. We offer science-based research and information in all of our courses and products.
