As a completely student run program, the Earlham College Stables Cooperative is a unique community. The Cooperative includes members of the Earlham and Richmond communities who come from a variety of equine backgrounds, ranging from a lifetime of horse involvement to absolutely none. The cooperative maintains the facility, operates a lesson program, and cares for Earlham's school horses as well as the student owned horses living at the facility. As a group, we work to ensure that everyone feels welcome and has an opportunity to grow with respect to horsemanship in an environment that is safe for all horses and humans involved.
How to Join Co-op
If you are interested in joining Co-op, register for the course AWPE 109 Introduction to Equine Studies. Lessons are included with Co-op membership. Do NOT register for riding lessons in addition, or your student account would be billed a course fee for the lessons.
Co-op meetings are every Monday at 8:30 p.m. in Stout Meetinghouse while classes are in session on-campus.
If you are not interested in becoming part of Co-op, but you want to take riding lessons, register for one of the riding lesson courses (AWPE 171-175) according to your riding ability and experience level. (View the course descriptions for detailed information and feel free to write firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance with course selection.) There is a $150 fee for these courses that would be charged to your student account. Visit “Signing Up for Lessons” for more information.
