The Virginia Tech Campbell & Smithfield Horse Units are located on either side of route 460 between the Virginia Tech exits. These farms are integrated into a quiet corner of campus and offer many opportunities to Virginia Tech students and employees.

We currently have 6 AQHA & thoroughbred broodmares with all foals, yearlings, and 2 yr olds being used for teaching equine training and marketing.
Our mission is to promote a higher understanding of the study of equine science to the students of Virginia Tech. We also strive to produce quality foals each year to raise, train and sell them to good homes.
