hookedonhorses: Which College?

First off, hello.  I am Jessica.  I'm 18 and love my 7 year old gelding Chubs.  I live in SE Houston, TX.  I am very outgoing and just crazy... lol.  Glad to be a member of this community.

I'm so confused where to go... Im a senior this year and will have to start applying to Colleges.  But which?  I for sure want to go to a college where I can bring my horse with me.  I ride western and have competed in speed events.  I would prefer a college that isn't entirely english, but majority english is ok.  I would like to also find a place where the horse facilities are on campus.  Off campus is ok, but I am so often in the barn and I like to be close to my baby.  Any ideas?  So far I have Cazenovia College in NY, Northwest College in WY, Sul Ross State Uni in TX, SUNY Cobleskill in NY, and West Texas A&M in TX (though I couldn't find any info on boarding).  Does anyone know of any good places to go?  I want to major in equine studies.

If you have any interest in southern California...

I know that Cal Poly Pomona has equestrian facilities on campus (we were supposed to have our first IHSA show today but it rained last night, socal doesn't seem to believe in indoor arenas, so it was cancelled). I have no idea if they let students board horses on campus though.

Anywho, they seem to have a fair number of both western and english riders and probably have a an equine studies major so they might be worth checking out.

I'm looking into them right now, thanks. They do seem to have a fair number of both, however I am having difficulty finding any equine majors.
