The Nancy Ellis Knox Equestrian Center includes a lighted riding ring, hunter trails field, stables for 30 horses, and 40 acres of wooded trails. The College’s equestrian program dates back to the establishment of the Rivoli campus in 1928. Stables and pastures were originally located across Forsyth Road on land that the college later sold. When the college acquired Bradley House in the 1950s, three equestrian buildings came with it, and these became the basis of the college’s revived riding program. (more)
