Developed through the passionate support of Midwestern horsemen, the Iowa Equestrian Center is a true dual-purpose facility. During the week, the stables, stalls and arena serve as Kirkwood’s Horse Science classrooms and working laboratories.
On the weekends, the center hosts hundreds of premier equine events, including futurities, saddle club shows, open shows, clinics, and local and regional shows involving many breed associations. In fact, the center is booked almost every weekend. Visit the calendar of events for more information about the Iowa Equestrian Center shows.
Kirkwood has one of the largest Horse Science Progams in the Midwest, in part due to the superior facilities at the Iowa Equestrian Center. It provides infinite learning possibilities for our students as we educate them to honor the traditions of horsemanship and prepare them for a dynamic future in the horse industry.
