We encourage you to check out our practice and hopefully set up a visit. You will find our Externship is a high quality, hands-on experience where you will be included in a warm, supportive environment. Externships are not only a means of recruiting future interns, but are also a great opportunity to build a relationship with the next generation of horse loving veterinarians.
Our practice philosophy centers on creating a supportive, positive work environment with specific attention to work / life balance. We promote teamwork and encourage our veterinarians to pursue their specific areas of interest in equine medicine.
We provide veterinary students with exposure to high quality sport horse practice. We aim to provide a hands-on experience that cannot be achieved in the classroom.
Students have an opportunity to ride along with each veterinarian in the practice. We do not accept more than one student at a time so we can provide a meaningful experience.
Types of cases:
General Practice/Preventative Care: 30%

Each truck is equipped with an x-ray machine, ultrasound machine, endoscope, gastroscope, shockwave machine, dentistry equipment, a full pharmacy, and more.
Appointments are scheduled Monday through Friday and often on Saturday mornings. Work on Sundays is generally limited to emergencies and continuing care of patients.
We provide excellent onsite housing with a private bedroom, bathroom and a kitchen. Our housing is at no cost. Students are free to make their own accommodations if desired. Although the extern apartment is located at the main office building, a personal vehicle is still recommended.
