Summary and Implications
The current barns were built between 1923 and 1927. With the increased enrollment in Animal Science students, it is always a challenge with our facilities, as horse courses are always full. All the horses are used for teaching and outreach activities. The herd consists of Quarter Horses and Thoroughbreds. Quarter Horses are marketed towards the pleasure industry while the Thoroughbreds are marketed towards a racing career.
