Ride. Compete. Soar.

University of Mary Washington Equestrian Team

Taking the college career from books to boots!

The University of Mary Washington (UMW) Equestrian team is a large part of the Hazelwilld Farm's riding program. Students may take part in all activities at the farm including: boarding, employment, volunteering, lessons & showing. Students are strongly encouraged to participate in the care & maintenance of the horses, to assist less-experienced riders in the lessons & learn stable management. We also appreciate when our college students volunteer with our Therapeutic Riding & Special Olympics programs!
