Oppenheimer Family Equine Center
- The first phase of the two-phase project, the now-complete 60,000-square-foot covered riding area, foaling barn, stallion barn and hay barn at the northern end of Cal Poly’s campus opened to students in March.
- Students from across campus benefit from the center, with programs including a foaling and breeding enterprise, a quarter horse enterprise, the Cal Poly Dressage Team, the Cal Poly Polo Team and the Cal Poly Equestrian Team.
- The next phase of construction will include a second riding arena, the Animal Health Center, and an events center and is planned to begin construction in coming years.
- The project is being funded by a $20 million donation made to the College of Agriculture, Food and Environmental Sciences from longtime Cal Poly supporters Peter and Mary Beth Oppenheimer.
