The Equestrian Center Enhancement Project

As part of the Equestrian Center Enhancement Project, Centenary College launched the “Building on Equine Excellence” campaign in 2009 to seek support for the improvement of facilities at the College’s Equestrian Center. This effort resulted in new footing for the Center’s main United States Equestrian Team Arena, the restoration of the Back Barn and repairs and improvements to fencing at the Equestrian Center. Future goals include: Purchase a new truck; replace footing in the small indoor arena; and replace footing in the outdoor arena.

The Equine Studies Department at Centenary College provides a comprehensive academic course of study, with an emphasis on riding rarely found in higher education. The program offers its 140 students a Bachelor of Science degree in Equine Studies, with four possible concentrations, along with an Associate in Science in Equine Studies and an Equine minor. We are pleased to announce that a Bachelor of Science degree in Equine Science (Pre-veterinary Track) will start in the fall of 2015. The Department’s home is the 65-acre Equestrian Center in Long Valley, Washington Township (Morris County). The program also features a Therapeutic Riding program and full-time Veterinary Services.

Goals and accomplishments:

The summer of 2011 saw the Equestrian Center Enhancement Project focused on the Back Barn Restoration Project, as seen below. Although the physical renovation of this important facility is complete thanks to 165 generous volunteers, your gift will help Centenary College reach the financial goal of the Project.

Current enhancement project goals include: Purchasing a horse walker/exerciser; an additional therapeutic riding horse; capital improvements to the pharmacy and veterinary work space; a new truck for transporting horses and equipment; replacement of footing in the small indoor arena; and replacement of footing in the outdoor arena.
