Hollins Horses


The riding program is well known for its outstanding group of horses. All are donated to the university and many come from horse show backgrounds of distinction. This group of horses offers a full complement of talents; they are safe, sound, and appropriate for the job that is asked of them. From the beginner horse to the most talented show horse, Hollins’ quality horses are among the program’s finest features.
