Horses of the Future at CPP
The W.K. Kellogg Arabian Horse Center is excited to offer an opportunity to the entire community to help continue the legacy of CP horses!
The Arabian Horse Center would benefit from investing in new equipment that would assist with the horse breeding program at Cal Poly Pomona.
In Equine Reproduction, the use of ultrasound technology has been transformational. However, as with any technology, it is continually improving. Having a reproduction specific ultrasound machine gives us a much greater diagnostic and teaching machine.
The improved diagnostics of this reproduction specific machine will allow for earlier pregnancy detection which improves our reproductive efficiency in getting mares in foal with less wasted time.
Students are welcome in all majors through an equine studies minor. For those looking to make horses a career, Cal Poly Pomona's College of Agriculture offers outstanding Animal Science and Agribusiness programs. Students can get hands on experience in breeding, general farm management, and/or grooming and training. Whatever the interest is, learn by doing on our acres of teaching farms from outstanding practioners.
The Kellogg Legacy
The W.K. Kellogg Arabian Horse Center was established in 1925 by the cereal magnate Will Keith Kellogg of Battle Creek, Michigan. In his quest to fulfill a childhood dream, W.K. Kellogg sought out the finest Arabian bloodlines of the day to begin a breeding program at his winter home in Pomona, California. He acquired horses from within the United States and abroad, importing several horses from Lady Wentworth’s famed Crabbet Arabian Stud in England. The ranch became a popular destination for 1920s Hollywood stars to visit rare Arabian horses, and Kellogg’s horses appeared in several films. The ranch became so popular that a show was established on Sundays in order to better showcase the Arabian horses. W.K. Kellogg presented the ranch to the state of California in 1932 with the stipulation that the Arabian breeding program and the Sunday Shows be maintained.
