Our Mission

The ultimate example of liberal arts at work and play, the Held Equestrian Center provides a foundation for riders to experience a professional equestrian operation within a higher educational environment.

We strive to provide opportunities for instruction in riding and horse management and to teach not only in the traditional form, but also by example.

We value the lessons acquired through competitive pursuits and also through the daily work with horses, both of which help students strengthen their inner character.

We seek to send qualified and prepared horsemen and women into the workforce, both in the equine industry and beyond.

Collier Benefit Show

Our February winter series indoor jumper schooling show has been designated as a benefit fundraising show for our friend Sydney Collier.

sydchipSydney (and her horse Rebel Chip) are familiar faces at Held Equestrian Center events and aspire to represent the United States in international competition in the discipline of para-dressage.  We
support her goals and have pledged a percentage of the proceeds from the February show to help her attend the Dressage Affaire in Del Mar, CA in March, a CPEDI3* competition.  While there, she will also have an opportunity to ride in a clinic with former dressage Olympian Debbie McDonald.

If you'd like to offer your support for this determined young rider, donations to Sydney's quest can be made with your show entries (see the entry blank
for details) or dropped off at the show office during the competition.

Alternatively, you may also send your donation directly to the United States Para Equestrian Association (USPEA).  Make checks payable to "USPEA" and designate "Sydney Collier" on the memo line, then mail to:

USPEA

We look forward to seeing everyone at the show!
