Patti Stalley, professor of equine studies
CWC Equine Professor Patti Stalley began developing CWC's equine studies program more than a quarter century ago and today it has a nationally recognized curriculum.
For many of Stalley's students, the college's horsemanship program is able to transform a student's love for horses into a meaningful and productive career. CWC graduates have gone on to work as equine facilities managers, horse trainers and to show horses internationally.
"Our program has become known as a progressive program by staying current with national and international equine trends," Stalley said. "We encourage our students to become well rounded."
Word-of-mouth accolades about Stalley's instruction and the equine program at CWC have spread.
Students come from across the nation travel to Riverton to enroll, and the program has even attracted some international students.
In the fall of 2012, Patti received the International Instructor of the Year by the Certified Horsemanship Association.
