JWU's Center for Equine Studies is located in Rehoboth, Massachusetts, just a short drive from Providence. The 31-acre farm is located in the Massachusetts countryside, adjacent to the Rehoboth State Forest.
The farm includes a 70’ x 170’ mirrored indoor riding hall with leather-based footing, attached 32-stall barn, pastures and turn-out paddocks, and a round pen used as a schooling and training course.
Rounding out the facility are three show quality outdoor arenas:
The Equine Center is equipped with a pine-paneled observation room housing modern communication technologies that allow clinicians to address students and spectators during mounted lessons. Classroom space, administrative offices and a conference area with kitchen facilities make this a comfortable meeting area. Heated tack rooms, laundry facilities, wash stall and storage create additional ease and efficiency.
The horses for school are all selected for their training and temperament. Several different breeds are represented, including Dutch and Swedish Warmblood, Hanoverien, Holsteiner, Thoroughbred, Trakehner, Quarter Horse and Morgan. Many of the horses have successful show records which include competition experience at the F.E.I. level of dressage, on the hunter/jumper circuit, and in eventing.
