ESES: Equine Science & Equestrian Studies
For girls that are passionate about a career in veterinary, environmental, and biological sciences; equine management; business and entrepreneurship; and human services, the Equine Science and Equestrian Studies program is being created just for them. The ESES diploma consists of both common and locally developed Ontario Secondary School courses, AP courses, one to three days at the stables, co-op and work placements, and extensive out of province and international travel. Applications open in summer 2018 for current OHS students, and in fall for new OHS students.

ESES students learn how other farm animals can sustainably enhance an agricultural ecosystem.
Goats are excellent at eating weeds in pastures, and are used on some farms to improve grazing. Using goats not only makes good environmental sense, but good business sense too. The "wool" from some goat breeds can be sold to wool mills or artisan spinners.
