R-MC’s Equestrian Club welcomes students from all equestrian disciplines and at every level of experience from beginner to advanced.

Founded in 1830, Randolph-Macon College is a private, co-educational liberal arts college in Ashland, Virginia known for its science programs like psychology, economics, biology, and sociology. R-MC has a tight-knit community of around 1400 students and prides itself on being located in the heart of Virginia’s horse country.

The Randolph-Macon College Equestrian Club, established in 2010, is a vital part of the college community. The club helps its members in ways that go far beyond their education, like building relationships, honing life-skills, developing campus community, and helping students gain greater exposure and experience in equestrian competitions and training.
