Craig Memorial Equestrian Center
Craig Memorial Equestrian Center (CMEC) is a locally-owned and operated stable located in Leverett, MA, just 15 minutes away from UMass Amherst. Roberta Bryant is a caring, talented, and experienced, lifelong competitive trail rider, and, Morab breeder, who has kept the doors of our lesson program open for over 40 years! In addition to our lesson program, we offer vacation & summer programs, boarding, leasing and access to miles of trails up Roaring Brook Mountain. As well as community events such as the Franklin County 4-H Horse Show, an annual Gymkhana series, Pleasure Rides, Clinics and an annual ECTRA-sanctioned 25 mile Competitive Trail Ride!
At Craig Memorial Equestrian Center, we emphasize safety, learning, and, cultivating meaningful relationships with our horsey friends. All riders are required to wear safety helmets when mounted, to participate in horsemanship activities, and we make it fun!
Craig Memorial Equestrian Center also hosts a slew of events for riders all across the state including a Summer/Fall Gymkhana series, 4-H and Schooling Shows, Clinics, Pleasure Rides, and last but not least, an annual, ECTRA-sanctioned 25 mile Competitive Trail Ride!

And if you can, help us finish our barn!
Since 1970, Roberta Bryant has devoted her life to creating a safe, accessible, and supportive environment for all members of our community to bond with horses and learn valuable life lessons.
At 80 years old, Bert continues to teach and mentor young riders, and spread the wellness that horse relationships provide, but we need your help.
We need to bring our barn back to its former greatness by our 51st Anniversary but we need your support!
Please, donate now.
