Our Goal

The goal of Iron Horse Equine is to provide accurate, up to date information on subjects pertaining to horse management and reproduction. We provide a range of commercial services to help horse industry members attain their breeding goals and reach to the future with new technologies.

Who We Are

Iron Horse Equine was formed in October 2003, by our founding member, Deb Ottier. After graduating from the University of Guelph with a Bachelor of Science in Agriculture, our key member, Deb Ottier, pursued a career in research. While working at the Equine Research Centre in Guelph, Ontario, Deb conducted research in the area of reproduction, covering topics such as collection, semen evaluation techniques, extender evaluation, embryo recovery, and fertility of frozen semen. Deb set up a certification program via Distance Learning on the aspects of Horse Management. Deb continued her educational pursuits in undertaking a Masters degree in reproductive physiology from Guelph as well. Deb continues to work with industry leaders to maintain and enhance current certificate level programs.
