Equestrian Opportunities

Continuing our equestrian tradition

Welcome to the University of South Carolina Aiken's Equestrian Community.  Located in the heart of horse country, the University celebrates Aiken's longstanding equestrian tradition.  We encourage all students who are interested in continuing their equestrian activities and lifestyle while furthering their education to explore the opportunities our university has to offer both in and outside of the classroom.  Whatever your equestrian discipline, you will find it in Aiken.

US News and World Report has ranked the University of South Carolina Aiken for the past twenty years as one of the top three Public Baccalaureate Colleges in the South.  Known for small class sizes, accessible faculty, and a diverse student body, the University with its equestrian opportunities is a perfect match for students who love horses and want to ride year round.
