Mari Hulman George School of Equine Studies

Photo Gallery

Over the years, the equine program has evolved and expanded at SMWC to meet the growing demand of students and the horse industry.

In 1999, the Board of Trustees approved a major expansion and renovation of the current facility. In the winter of 2001, construction was complete. This new construction allowed space for personnel in the equine department, teaching and laboratory areas, and additional stalls.

The original barn is architecturally very appealing with its massive Gambrel red roof and masonry façade. This charming stable contains 24 stalls, a classroom, 2 tack rooms, office space, and restrooms. 

The new stalling area is connected to the original barn with two roofed sections and a lovely courtyard in the center of the two barns. The new barn is 230 x 40 feet, housing 31 stalls, 1 large tack room, 4 grooming stalls, 2 wash stalls, and a storage area for grain and equipment. This space is entirely heated, and the design allows for a very work friendly environment. The stalls add a special appearance to the interior with arched design; grill work, and decorative lighting.
