Equitation is the cornerstone for any person who works with horses. The equitation course at Cal Poly Pomona offers students the chance to develop their foundation at the renowned W. K. Kellogg Arabian Horse Center. The Arabian Horse Center traces its origins back to 1925, when the late W. K. Kellogg, founder of the Kellogg Company in Battle Creek, Michigan, purchased land and built his ranch in Pomona. The Center occupied the original Kellogg stables prior to the dedication of the existing facility on April 6, 1974. It is home to approximately 85 purebred Arabian horses used in Equine Sciences’ teachings, outreach, research and internationally recognized breeding and training programs. Facilities at the center include 38 acres of pasture, three barns, foaling stalls, a breeding area, a veterinary clinic, a farrier shop, four arenas and a grandstand.
