Equestrian Center

Walker’s Equestrian Center is among the best of any school in the country.

The Ethel Walker School provides a strong foundation to maintain a best-in-class riding program.

The Equestrian Center is on Walker’s 175-acre campus, providing ready access to the barn and horses, as well as winding trails and extensive turnouts.

On Campus Facilities

Our Equestrian Center is located on campus, so you are just steps away from your horse and your equestrian activities. The proximity of the barn to the academic buildings allows you to take riding lessons during the day as part of your normal school schedule.
