In January of 2009, Georgia riders moved into their spacious new home, the UGA Equestrian Complex, located in Bishop, Ga., approximately 12 miles south of the UGA campus. The 109-acre farm offers Georgia the finest in equine accommodations.

Formerly known as High Point Farm, the facility served the Athens-area equine community with boarding and training facilities since 1993. In 1996, High Point was selected as the training site for the U.S. Dressage Team, which competed in the Summer Olympic Games at the International Horse Park in Conyers, Ga.

Equestrian was added as UGA's 21st intercollegiate varsity sport in 2001. Since the first year of competition in 2002, the team trained and held meets at the Animal Science Arena on South Milledge Avenue. UGA's College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences (CAES) and the Department of Animal and Dairy Science operate the facility and graciously hosted the Bulldogs through the Fall of 2008.

The academic programs within the CAES, as well as the varsity Equestrian program, continued to expand in the middle years of the past decade. The Equestrian program's move to High Point Farm in 2009 facilitated the continued growth of both programs.

"We are so excited and the Equestrian team is very fortunate and appreciative of the Athletic Association's support," said head coach Meghan Boenig. "Our farm gives us the opportunity to take care of our student-athletes and our equine athletes. It gives us a chance to put firm roots down for our program. We are deeply appreciative of our time on South Milledge, but we are truly fortunate to be at High Point Farm."

Though many facilities at High Point already exist, the Athletic Association plans to develop the property to suit the needs of the Equestrian program. Preliminary plans include the construction of an outdoor arena, as well as locker-room facilities for the student-athletes.

Over its eight-year history, the UGA program under Boenig has become the national leader in varsity equestrian, which is classified as an "emerging" sport by the NCAA. The Bulldogs have won five national championships, captured five Southern Equestrian titles, and have lost just one dual meet at home since the format was introduced over five years ago.
