The W. K. Kellogg Arabian Horse Center is a showcase facility that houses approximately 150 purebred Arabian horses used in teaching, research, and breeding. The Center includes 38 acres of irrigated pasture, four barns for stabling horses, foaling stalls with an observation room, a breeding barn, a veterinary scieces laboratory, an arena, a farrier shop, and research facilities.
The Arabian Horse Center breeding program produces approximately 10-15 foals per year and offers horses for sale to the general public. A sales list is available on the Center web site, listing breeding, history, and prices.
Cal Poly Pomona horses are exhibited by students and the horse center’s trainers in competitive all-Arabian horse shows, the Pasadena Tournament of Roses Parade, national Arabian horse shows, California Arabian horse shows, and Cal Poly Pomona Sunday and Thursday horse shows. The hundreds of ribbons and trophies displayed at the Center attest to the quality of the Arabians at the W. K. Kellogg Arabian Horse Center.
Equine Research Center
Located in the same complex as the Arabian Horse Center is the Equine Research Center. This facility was established in 1980 and was built with funds provided by Oak Tree Racing Association at Santa Anita Racetrack. The Equine Research Center provides students with an opportunity to become involved in direct study of current problems concerning the equine industry. Undergraduate students may participate in equine related research projects to satisfy their degree requirement for a senior project. Graduate students use the facility and its modern equipment for completion of their thesis research requirement.
The Equine Research Center contains a wide range of sophisticated equipment including semen/embryo processing capabilities, hormone assay equipment, tissue culture facilities, and a high speed equine treadmill.
