Keiser University recently purchased an equestrian center in Loxahatchee Groves, Fla., located at 2650 A Road, which will become the new home of the University’s equestrian club team and allow for expansion of its equine studies programs. The new facility, which adds to the University’s growing footprint in Palm Beach County and was purchased to benefit Keiser University’s equine studies programs, was recently featured in the Lake Okeechobee News.
The facility was purchased by Keiser University to support the University’s equine studies degree programs in Biomedical Science and Business Administration. Keiser’s Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Sciences Equine Studies concentration is a pre-veterinary program offering graduates a well-rounded educational opportunity which prepares them to specialize in the equine industry. The Bachelor of Arts in Business with a concentration in Equine Studies offers students an in-depth study of the functional areas of the equine business industry.
“Equine studies is a very specialized field and we’re pleased to be able to provide this facility to our students pursuing business and biomedical science degrees,” said Arthur Keiser, Ph.D., Chancellor of Keiser University. “The equestrian center will add to Keiser University’s positive footprint in Palm Beach County and offer our equine students a dedicated and unique learning facility close to our Flagship campus.”
In addition to its academic use, the new facility will provide a home for the Seahawks’ equestrian club team which is a member of the Intercollegiate Horse Shows Association (IHSA). The new site will allow Keiser University to host competitions with both organizations. Like many collegiate equestrian teams, Keiser University previously rented its equestrian space from Wall Street Farm in Lake Worth. With the purchase of the new equestrian center, Keiser University will become the only college or university in Florida to own its own competitive equestrian center.
