CHAPS, Penn State Equine Research Team Host Open House Prior To Indiana Game

The Collegiate Horseman’s Association at Penn State and the Penn State Equine Research Team will co-host an open house of their horse farm on September 30 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The fifth annual open house will give Penn State students and members of the State College community an opportunity to meet some of the university’s 70 horses. It will be hosted at the “Old Barn”, which is directly across from the north end zone of Beaver Stadium

The barns are typically closed to the public, but CHAPS is giving access to them in conjunction with Celebrate Agriculture Day during the Penn State game against Indiana. Normally, these horses are used in classes for the equine science minor, and they also expect to breed 20 foals per year.

“The open house is important because it allows the general public, especially those with no agricultural background, to see what Penn State students in the equine science program are doing,” CHAPS President Rachel Reaser said.

The open house will give Penn State football fans an interesting opportunity to meet some horses prior to the Nittany Lions’ 3:30 p.m. kickoff against Indiana at Beaver Stadium.

Mikey Mandarino

In the most upsetting turn of events, Mikey graduated from Penn State with a digital & print journalism degree in the spring of 2020. He covered Penn State football and served as an editor for Onward State from 2018 until his graduation. Mikey is from Bedminster, New Jersey, so naturally, he spends lots of time yelling about all the best things his home state has to offer. Mikey also loves to play golf, but he sucks at it because golf is really hard.
