Site Description


The Equine Center is located at the north end of Via Carta Road on the campus of California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo. The land was originally part of the Protrero de San Luis Obispo Spanish Land grant.

Not only is the Equine Center home for Cal Poly horses, but for other living organisms as well. Animals, plants and soils reside in the area of the Equine facilities, contributing to the diversity and complexity of the site.
