Who We Are

Magnolia Sport Horse is an equine exclusive ambulatory practice providing services in Central and North Florida. We provide advanced lameness and poor performance diagnostics, therapies, and rehabilitation including digital x-ray, ultrasound, Curo Diagnostics, ProPulse shockwave, Pegasus class IV laser therapy, ProStride, Restigen PRP and trigger point and sports massage therapy. We do not provide general well horse care or emergency services so that we can focus 100% on your horse during your appointments. We schedule extra time for all of our appointments so we are never rushed. We work with the Equine Medical Center of Ocala to provide additional services, including standing MRI and bone scan, if we are not able to provide needed services at your facility. We would love the opportunity to work as a team with your wellness veterinarian, farrier, trainer and you to maximize your horse's comfort and potential.
