Discover Your Passion at the Liberty University Equestrian Center

Ride. Dream. Compete.

Come and enjoy the expansive 380-acre property at the Equestrian Center. 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.  The Liberty Equestrian Center is a USHJA Recognized Riding Academy.

Are you a student and an experienced rider? Our men’s and women’s Hunt Seat and Western Club Sports teams compete in the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association. Team tryouts are held each year.

As a student, you can also take riding classes, board your horse, volunteer, or apply to work part-time with us.

And even if you don’t ride, you can always stop by and see the horses! Take a break and enjoy all that Liberty University has to offer at the Equestrian Center.
