McPhail Equine Performance Center Facility

History of the Center

On July 23rd, 1999 construction began on the new Mary Anne McPhail Equine Performance Center that integrates our clinical and research studies of performance horses and lameness. The 18,000 sq ft state-of-the-art facility opened in 2001 and is dedicated to clinical and research studies of equine performance problems in all types of horses. The McPhail Performance Center is complimented by The MSU Equine Hospital with its wide range of diagnostic techniques including radiology, ultrasound, scintigraphy, CT scanning, endoscopy, and arthroscopy. The specialized services provided by the new Equine Performance Center further expand our clinical and research capabilities while the Equine Performance Program Endowment provides secure research funding for the betterment of sport horse health and performance.
