The Equine Experience

The 3rd Annual CSU Equine Experience was recently held at the Equine Center.  This event was developed, marketed and hosted by our students in the Equine Event Management class!  The Equine Experience was open to the public and was a great opportunity to learn and interact with horses.




Serriby is an Arabian cross with a kind personality who is very eager to please. At 17 years old, she’s an athletic, attractive mover who is sure to draw attention! She has done it all while at CSU from the trails to the arena and is looking forward to continuing her education with a new partner.  UPDATE: SERRIBLY HAS BEEN ADOPTED!  CONGRATULATIONS!!

For Adoption!

McAllister is a 16 year old thoroughbred gelding with a kind and gentle disposition.  He is easy and calm to handle on the ground and quiet under saddle. This gentleman would make a great dressage prospect or all around type horse for a confident rider looking to gain training experience.  Email the Temple Grandin Equine Center for more information.

For Adoption!

Claire is a confident, independent mare who is a joy to take out on the trails! She is 14 years old and has had a lot of training under saddle. This sturdy paint is perfect to swing a rope off of, lead a group on the trail, move cows, and enjoy as a family horse. She would make a great mount for an intermediate ride!Email the Temple Grandin Equine Center for more information.
