Equine Sports Medicine Complex

The Equine Sports Medicine Complex is a vital asset for Tufts Equine Center.  The innovative complex is home to an 80x120 foot arena, large holding stalls, open examination/treatment areas, a client consultation room and outdoor holding paddocks. The arena provides a safe, quiet and comfortable place for patients to be evaluated in-hand or under saddle.

The arena’s IGK Litestride footing provides a level surface for horses to exercise and simulate how they work at home. For clinicians, this means increased accuracy when it comes to the diagnosis and treatment of even the subtlest lameness. The arena also provides an optimal location for horses to be evaluated for upper respiratory or cardiac issues which can impact performance. There is ample room for a horse to be observed working in all three gaits, as well as over fences.

I'm grateful such an excellent facility was available for my horse. I will be getting the usefulness of my horse back, I can not explain in words how wonderful that is. Thank you to Dr. Bubeck and all the staff who cared for Charlie.

A Grateful Client
