A hands-on educational opportunity
The UVM Cooperative Horse Barn is an educational facility in which students have the opportunity to learn skills such as equine management, teamwork and leadership while bringing their horse with them to college.
Membership in the UVM Horse Barn requires a large time commitment as well as a willingness to work with others to achieve the common goal of running the facility in conjunction with the UVM educational mission. Members of the UVM Horse Barn pay a decreased boarding fee and are responsible for the care of their own horse as well as additional chores and time spent at the barn completing horse watch duties and attending meetings. Students are also largely involved in the management and decision-making processes within the Horse Barn.
Horse Barn co-op currently has 6 openings for student owned horses Fall 23
