Pastures & Paddocks
The Held Equestrian Center is situated on 340 acres of lush countryside on the southernmost edge of the Albion College campus. The grounds feature 37 paddocks for turnout and manicured trails for students to ride on.
During the season it can be a huge advantage to turn horses out after exercise. This can be useful a variety of reasons, from ensuring the older horses stay mentally stimulated and to vary their routine, to keeping hard-working joints loose and supple. We have two metal turnout pens provided by Claydon, as well as six sectioned paddocks, and these have proved an essential tool in enabling our horses to reap the benefits that daily turnout can bring.
