Built in 1987, the Mount Holyoke College Equestrian Center is considered to be one of the finest facilities for educational and competitive riding available to students anywhere. Its stable provides over 69 spacious, airy, rubber-matted stalls, a large outdoor all-weather footing show arena, a permanent dressage arena, two indoor arenas, all-weather turnout paddocks, hunt field and a cross-country course through 120 acres of woods, fields, and streams.
The College's Hunt seat riding team, coached by the legendary C.J. Law, is a regular visitor to the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association (IHSA) National Championships. Since 2000, the Lyons have taken home a pair of National titles (2000, 2006) and two Reserve Championships (2005, 2007). They have placed in the top ten several times.
