Our Horses

The horses at the Held Equestrian Center are an integral part of the teams and the riding program.

Without the generosity of our donors and amazing support from our team of veterinarians, farriers, and sponsors, our horses wouldn't be able to serve our students and the College in the ways that they do. They are the backbone of our program and teach our students about more than just riding every single day.
