Equine Assisted Growth and Learning Association
In April of 2015 EAGALA held their first training at the Equine Center and were impressed with the facility.
“The Richard Bland College Equine Facility is one of the most beautiful settings I have seen. The location of the facility made all travel effortless, the landscape, layout of the barn & pastures, and the parking area is a perfect setting for training purposes. Most importantly the overall setting makes for a very private feeling that aids as a learning environment. I look forward to the opportunity to train at RBC in the future!”
Mickey DiGiacomo – EAGALA Program Director
