The Equestrian Center is home to Liberty Hunter and Western Equestrian teams, as well as student boarders and Kinesiology riding classes. Three main barns hold 52 permanent horse stalls and 5 indoor wash stalls with hot water. Each barn has air-conditioned and heated tack rooms and rest rooms. There are also climate controlled feed room, offices, equestrian team locker rooms, shower, team room and study rooms, a classroom, and a staff break room with a kitchen. All stalls are rubber matted, 12' x 12', with sliding front doors and Dutch back doors, most with an all-weather outdoor run. High ceilings and 14' wide aisle ways make the barns roomy and airy. 

All horses get daily pasture turnout, each 5 to 10 hilly acres with automatic waterers and loafing sheds. There are miles of trails for boarders to ride on the mountain, in addition to the two brand new riding areas. The 120' x 300' outdoor ring has lights and an automatic water cannon watering system. The indoor ring is one of the largest in Virginia, with state-of-the-art footing, lights and ventilation. It is used for collegiate and other shows in addition to daily riding.

Liberty also has a 20-stall guest barn used for horse shows, and three additional wash stalls for guests.  On another part of the property, Liberty owns a quarantine barn and a retirement farm, with 8 additional stalls and about 60 acres of additional pasture.  Altogether, the Liberty Equestrian Center is nearly 500 acres with 80 stalls, about 140 acres of turnout and 72,000 square feet of high tech riding surface. 

Programming includes the Hunter and Western Equestrian Teams, a show team that competes at regular horse shows, a student boarding facility, three levels of Kinesiology riding, a therapeutic horsemanship program, and the facility hosts several shows per year.  We also still offer the student trail riding that started the program several years ago.
