Equine Education Center
The impact of horses in Utah is astounding. There are more than 250,000 horses in the state, making it a 700 million dollar industry. In response to the demand for equine education, the Animal, Dairy and Veterinary Science Department in the College of Agriculture and Applied Sciences has been home to a very successful horsemanship program. Many generations of students at USU have benefited from the riding and husbandry skills they have acquired through the courses taught at our facility.
The new Equine Education Center covers 26 acres and has a total of interior of 75,000 square feet. This includes and indoor arena measuring 150 x 300 feet, a 2400 square foot barn and classroom complex that will accommodate up to 100 students at one time. The physical facilities is surrounded by a bridle path that will allow users to enjoy one of the most beautiful locations in Utah. This new facility allows USU to host 10 to 15 4-H horse events each year.
