Equine science education, research and outreach will soon have a new home, thanks to the Texas A&M Equine Complex. Dr. Eleanor Green, Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences’ Carl B. King Dean of Veterinary Medicine, says the initiative will bring together students, faculty and equine industry leaders, and provide a foundation for research discoveries and outreach initiatives dedicated to the welfare of horses.
Initial construction, which has already begun, will include an education and outreach center, facilities for the Texas A&M Equestrian Team, a cross country course in collaboration with Texas A&M Athletics, and new facilities for the Parsons Mounted Cavalry.
With a long history of teaching, research, equine medicine and outreach excellence, Texas A&M has been a vital contributor to the equine industry for generations. Both the Department of Animal Science in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences and the College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences have been instrumental in providing the equine industry with knowledge and care that have advanced not only equine sciences, but the welfare of the horse as well.
