Charles and Linda Cline Equine Teaching Center

Charles and Linda Cline Equine Teaching Center; Department of Animal and Food Sciences

The Charles and Linda Cline Equine Teaching Center is a state-of-the-art equine teaching facility located on approximately 60 acres adjacent to the Animal Science Arena. The facility has a teaching barn, small indoor arena, classrooms, feed and tack rooms, a wash rack and treatment area. It’s home to OSU Sonny’s Slider, a nationally recognized Quarter Horse. His offspring have earned a total of 1,299 AQHA performance points with total incentive earnings reaching more than $21,000.

In 2001, Bullet was one of three finalists for the MD Barns Silver Spur Award presented by AQHA. This award honors those American Quarter Horses that have made a significant impact on the lives of others and have created a favorable perception of the breed.

The Equine Center currently has 65 head of primarily Quarter Horses in its inventory. Of this total, 22 are broodmares over the age of three, four geldings over the age of three, seven two-year-old fillies and geldings, 16 yearling fillies and geldings and three breeding age stallions. These horses are used for a variety of activities encompassing research, teaching and extension. The goal is for every horse to be used in some activity. All broodmares and stallions have been secured through donations or raised from donated stock. Each year, some of the mares are bred to the top sires in the industry, again on a donation basis, in an effort to raise high-quality horses as replacements, for use in class and for sale.

Other buildings include a 30’ x 85’ concrete block building that serves as a breeding shed and office, a 30’ x 50’ pole barn with three 16’ x 16’ stallion stalls, and 10,000 square feet of exercise paddocks. The 60 acres includes six native and bermuda grass pastures that range in size from five to 20 acres. An additional 100 acres off-site are used for grazing, production and additional acreage for producing hay.
