Equestrian Program


Barrie is fortunate that it has its own stable on campus. Formal lessons are available to all students ages 4 and up. Classes emphasize safety, horse and equipment care, and riding skills.

To schedule riding lessons, or to find out more about the program, call Sue Wentzel, Riding Coach and Director of the Equestrian Program at 301-576-2834.
