Dr. Patty Hogan will host a career exploration event for 14 to 18 year olds considering equine veterinary and horse health careers on Saturday, June 24, at Hogan Equine Clinic, on the grounds of Fair Winds Farm in Cream Ridge, N.J.
The event, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., will cover a typical day "behind the scenes" at the clinic, where the clientele includes many high profile horses from both Standardbred and Thoroughbred racing. Dr. Hogan's patients have included Kentucky Derby winner Smarty Jones and 2016 Standardbred Horse of the Year Always B Miki.
There will be a demonstration of the tools and strategies Dr. Hogan uses to diagnose and treat her patients. She will also discuss her career path, and how high school students can prepare for a career in equine medicine.
Equine health careers that do not require extensive post high school education will also be covered and resources for more information about equine medicine will be provided.
At noon, lunch will be provided; there will be an equine massage demonstration by Suzanne D'Ambrose of Free Motion Equine Massage with hands-on involvement. The event will conclude with meeting a mare and her new foal, born at Fair Winds, and a chance to learn about how the farm raises Standardbred racehorses.
Hogan Equine is on the grounds of Fair Winds Farm at 74 Red Valley Road in Cream Ridge, N.J. There is no tuition, but students are asked to bring a can of pet food to be donated to the Monmouth County SPCA Pet Food Bank.
