The equine industry is a critical component of agriculture in northeast Texas. Although much of the land in this region is used for cattle and hay production, a growing portion is dedicated to raising horses. A wide-range of individuals in northeast Texas raise horses and their reasons are many. Regardless of the goals, by the special nature of the human horse interaction, these equine ranchers provide an enhanced quality of life for both their customers and themselves. The Department of Agricultural Sciences is committed to making sure the residents of the region optimize their equine experience.
The Texas A&M University-Commerce Equine Center has a brand new covered riding facility that was just built in November 2012. This equine pavilion has a 110' X 180' riding arena, bleachers, 20 stalls for student boarding, 2 wash racks, and 2 tack rooms that each have 10 student tack lockers. The Equine Center also has a smaller outdoor riding arena that is used for obstacles and ground work and a larger outdoor riding arena that is equipped with chutes.
