About Us

The Equestrian Center is a USHJA Recognized Riding Academy that expands across a 380-acre property on Liberty Mountain. One of the largest facilities of its kind in Virginia, the center features indoor and outdoor riding arenas as well as three barns with 78 horse stalls. Even if you don’t ride, you can always stop by and see the horses — take a study break and enjoy all that Liberty University has to offer at the Equestrian Center! If you are planning on visiting as a group of 8+, please contact us in advance at equestriancenter@liberty.edu.
