A Weyers Cave equestrian center is now the permanent home of the Bridgewater College equestrian program.
The college announced yesterday that it had completed the purchase of Oak Manor Farms, a 75-acre equestrian center in Northern Augusta County, which will be renamed the Bridgewater College Equestrian Center.
The location has served as the home of BC’s equestrian program for seven years.
“Purchasing the site gave us the opportunity to ensure the continuation and growth of this very popular program,” Bridgewater College president Phillip Stone said.
“Acquiring this property demonstrates the college’s commitment to building upon the program’s successes, which include a conference championship last year, national awards, as well as multiple rider recognitions, and to providing a high quality, college-owned facility that can be used for generations to come,” Stone said.
