Morrisville State College hosts open house April 28 at new equine rehabilitation center

Center provides comprehensive care to horses, equine industry
MORRISVILLE, N.Y. –After nearly a decade of planning and fundraising, the Morrisville State College Equine Rehabilitation Center (MSCERC) recently welcomed its first horses.

A public open house is scheduled for April 28, from noon to 3 p.m., at the modern facility which offers equipment and rehabilitation techniques to keep healthy horses conditioned and to help injured equine athletes recover, post-injury or post-surgery.

The open house will feature a variety of information stations on different therapeutic modalities, and demonstrations.

Run by skilled, trained, and knowledgeable professionals who have dedicated their lives to horses, the MSCERC is one of very few publicly accessible equine rehabilitation facilities in the Northeast.

Located on 103 acres of land three miles west of Morrisville State College’s campus on Route 20, the new multi-million dollar campus addition boasts a 40,000-square-foot riding arena, stabling for 40 horses, and a complete rehabilitation center with state-of-the-art equipment and therapeutic modalities.

Equipment and therapeutic modalities include an underwater treadmill, indoor swimming pool, solariums, a cold salt-water spa, laser therapy, and therapeutic ultrasound.

The new facility offers the greater equine community of horse owners and trainers a unique level of service that until recently was unavailable locally. It also made way for a new equine rehabilitation concentration in the existing equine science bachelor degree program which will provide the equine industry with graduates who have had training in equine physical rehabilitation.

Morrisville State College sets the world in motion for students. Curriculums are enriched with applied learning and pave the way for opportunity at both the Morrisville and Norwich campuses. An action-oriented, interactive learning lab, the college is a national leader in technology. Lauded for its exemplary, innovative and effective community service programs, the college was named to the 2012 President’s Higher Community Service Honor Roll. Visit to experience, Morrisville in motion.
