Reproduction Services

The veterinarians and staff at Pioneer Equine Hospital pride themselves on offering the highest quality care to mares and stallions. Under the direction of our theriogenologist, Dr. Tracy Plough, the reproduction services we provide are expanding. With this expansion we are able to provide specialized treatment of infertile mares and administer advanced reproductive techniques such as embryo transfer and vitrification, uterine endoscopy, endoscopic insemination and in the near future plan to offer oocyte aspiration for transport to an ISCI center.


Our reproductive center is located 1.5 miles from our main hospital. This facility allows us to stand stallions for our clients either commercially or privately. We are capable of breeding via live-cover or collecting semen for artificial insemination. In addition, we are a USDA approved facility and an affiliate lab of Select Breeders Services and thus capable of providing comprehensive semen freezing services, including international distribution of frozen semen.
