About Hagyard Equine Medical Institute

Since its inception in 1876, Hagyard Equine Medical Institute has been at the forefront of equine medicine. Its reputation is built, in part, on a continued effort to increase veterinary knowledge and thereby improve the state-of-the-art treatments and surgeries offered to its diverse equine clientele which represent international breeding operations, world-renowned race horses as well as 3-day eventers and pleasure horses.

Today, this philosophy and practice continues at Hagyard Equine Medical Institute. With more than 50 veterinarians and a well-educated, experienced staff of support personnel all contributing a variety of specialties and interests, Hagyard is able - on a regular basis - to achieve superior results. No other single non-university veterinary group in the equine world is currently able to match its qualifications.
