Three Independently-Owned New York Equine Veterinary Practices Team Up in Support of Equine Veterinary Student Education

The independently-owned equine veterinary practices Millbrook Equine, The Equine Clinic at OakenCroft, and Rhinebeck Equine, who together founded Cavalcade Management Group, are pleased to present the Future Equine Practitioners Weekend. On September 10 and 11, 2022, second and third year veterinary students from Guelph University, University of Pennsylvania, Tufts University, Cornell University, Montreal University, Ohio State University, Long Island University, and the Atlantic Veterinary College will convene for a unique educational experience.

After two years of virtual programming, Cavalcade Management Group’s founding practices look forward to the return of an in-person event. The Future Equine Practitioners Weekend has the distinct goal of exposing veterinary students to a variety of hands-on experiences and valuable discussions with current veterinarians.The weekend will feature clinic tours, hands-on wet labs covering a variety of topics, and business panel discussions with industry leaders. New for this year, equine veterinary students will have the opportunity to learn more about internship and externship opportunities through the intern fair which will serve as the conclusion for the multi-day event.

“The Future Equine Practitioners Weekend by Cavalcade is a must for veterinary students interested in equine practice. The hands-on experience, mentorship potential and networking possibilities will be a great asset when seeking externships, internships, and job placement. We are excited to be back in person and look forward to meeting our future practitioners,” says Dr. Ryan Penno, founder of the Future Equine Practitioners Weekend and owner of The Equine Clinic at OakenCroft.

The Future Equine Practitioners Weekend is pleased to have the collaborative support of Zoetis Equine, Torigen Pharmaceuticals, ProElite Feed, TeraFloat U.S & SwissVet Veterinary Products, Hilltop BioSciences, Choice Medical Systems, Inc., Breeders Choice, Inc., Arthramid Vet, Blue Seal, NutraWorks Equine, and Patterson Veterinary.
