Mt Hood Center is bringing horses back to the old Mt Hood Equestrian Center. We are currently in the process of restoring this historic location back to its original splendor.
We understand that this space was once the gathering place for horse lovers throughout our community and that generations of memories were made in this place that has been a home to so many. The newly renovated Mt Hood Center is honored to be tasked with providing a new and exciting environment in which future generations will have the same opportunity to forge wonderful memories.
Mark Bolender, the founder of IMTCA, designed our unique trail course here at Mt Hood Center. The true centerpiece of our competition grade course is the stunning 24 feet long 13 feet high trestle bridge. Our viewing areas overlook our rolling hills, bridges, a multi leveled pyramid, balance beams, a teeter totter, maze and more. In addition to public activities and challenges this course will also be utilized as a training tool for clinics, lessons and open haul ins.
Mt Hood Center was initially built for horses by horse lovers and our team has worked diligently to respect the efforts and intentions of those who came before us. The facilities will include approximately 74 newly renovated stalls along with two completely renovated indoor arenas outfitted with multipurpose footing designed and installed by Arena Technologies. The garden and the entirety of the grounds will be restored and brought to life using permaculture principles of sustainability and self-sufficiency.
