Smith College has announced the closing of the Equestrian Center and the demotion of the varsity Equestrian Team to club status. This will permanently end the Equestrian program as generations of Smith students have known it.

Our mission is to ensure that the Smith College Equestrian Center stays open and that the Smith Equestrian Team continues as a varsity sport at this on-campus facility.
