Our mission objective is to improve health for all horses while optimizing the athletic potential and safety of sport horses through continued research, education and proactive veterinary services.
Through our work, new jobs are created in the horse industry for paraprofessionals who wish to work with horses in this emerging specialty field.
The American College of Veterinary Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation™ (ACVSMR) was created through collaborative efforts between Homecoming Farm, Inc.'s founder and director, Doctor Sheila Lyons and physician colleagues in the analogous human medical specialty field. Doctor Lyons completed a 3-year post doctoral fellowship in the human medical specialty of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation with a focus on Sports Medicine. She is the only veterinarian to have accomplished this and is a member of The American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.
Homecoming Farm has developed plans to create a model equine sports medicine and wellness training, research and educational center. Our architect is designing this unique facility to be the first “green” veterinary and training center for horses.
