The world famous Kellogg Ranch was established in 1925 by cereal magnate W.K. Kellogg. Kellogg grew to love horses as a boy when he owned a half-Arabian pony, but when he parted with Old Spot he vowed that some day he would have horses and that they would all be Arabians. After achieving outstanding success in the cereal food business, he realized his boyhood ambition by establishing the Kellogg Ranch as one of the worlds foremost Arabian breeding farms.
In 1949, the W.K. Kellogg Foundation donated the 816-acre ranch and horses to the university under the condition that Cal Poly Pomona would continue toutilize the Arabian horses in equine science education and breeding. Today, the university's comprehensive educational program includes instruction at the W.K. Kellogg Arabian Horse Center, Sunday exhibition shows, the Equine Research Center established in 1980, and clinics offered to the surrounding community.
