Tour Our Equine Facilities

Barns: The original barn is architecturally very appealing with its massive Gambrel red roof and masonry façade. This charming stable contains 24 stalls, a classroom, 2 tack rooms, office space, and restrooms. This historic barn is a general gathering place for all equine students.

The newer stalling area is connected to the original barn with two roofed sections and a lovely courtyard in the center of the two barns. The barn is 230 x 40 feet, housing 31 stalls, 1 large tack room, 4 grooming stalls, 2 wash stalls, and a storage area for grain and equipment. This space is entirely heated, and the design allows for a very work friendly environment. The stalls add a special appearance to the interior with arched design; grill work, and decorative lighting.

Classrooms: Additional space for the classroom and class area is very beneficial to accessibility and space to bring a horse into the teaching area. This new addition dramatically improves horse management skills and allows students and instructors the opportunity for hands-on interaction in horse care and horse training, which we feel is so very vital to the equine industry.
