Signature Equine Hospital offers a unique, well-rounded and challenging intern/extern program.

Because of the experience and uncommon sets of skills of the staff, students have the opportunity to be exposed to much more than a conventional program.

Our hospital features a forward-thinking approach to equine practice and utilizes the latest in technology and equipment. Our practice also includes an off-site breeding facility along with a full rehabilitation clinic. We are a full-service practice providing routine/preventative care, internal medicine and surgery with a focus on sports medicine for our western performance horse athletes.
