Pioneer Equine Hospital is located in California’s central valley near Oakdale, California. We are nestled between the foothills of the Sierra Mountains and the valley’s vast agricultural landscape. Pioneer Equine Hospital opened its doors in 1973, when two veterinarians had a vision to form the premier equine veterinary clinic in the area. Drs. Britton and Black built one of the most recognized equine hospitals in the country for equine surgery and lameness. From those deep roots, Pioneer has grown to become a full service referral hospital. In addition, we provide full service primary care on both an outpatient and ambulatory basis.
