Equine Center Animal Science Department Instructor: Mark S. Edwards, Ph.D. Office: 010-0147 Phone: 805.756.2599 Email: [email protected] Overview The Cal Poly equine program offers specific courses, internships, enterprise projects, volunteer activities and clubs that prepare students for careers in various segments of the equine and animal care industries. The program's unique and valuable experiences offer students diverse opportunities. The program includes a vast array of projects, enterprises, and types of horses. The horse unit facility houses roughly 100 horses during the summer and fall and roughly 200 during the winter and spring. The increase of horses comes with the addition of breeding season, colt-starting and student activities. Animals Multiple horse breeds are housed at the Equine Center, although the majority of the horses are American Quarter Horse or Thoroughbreds. Animals in all stages of life (neonates, growing juveniles, adults and geriatric adults) can be found at the Equine Center at various times of year. Additionally, horses in all stages of production (maintenance, exercise, breeding, growth) are onsite fulfilling various aspects of the programs. Animals owned by Cal Poly are housed on-site for long durations.
