Using electrocardiogram (ECG) and stress endoscopy, the Equine Clinic and the Institute of Veterinary Physiology will show the resilience of the cardiovascular system of horses. Experts will present anatomical specimens and inform visitors about animal nutrition, animal welfare, animal behavior, and biochemistry. Students, apprentices, and lecturers will describe the degree programs in veterinary medicine and equine science as well as apprenticeships at Freie Universität related to animals. Partners of the university such as the Leibnitz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research will provide information about wolves, lynxes, raptors, and bees. Food and drinks can be purchased at a student café, a barbecue and concession stand, and the Finsterwalder Brauhaus.
The Equine Center in Bad Saarow was opened in 2014. It is the only institution in Europe that offers training in species-appropriate handling of horses, training in dealing with difficult horses, training young horses for riding, and reproductive medicine and horse breeding all in one place. The director of the Equine Center is Johannes Handler, a professor at Freie Universität Berlin specialized in reproductive medicine and imaging techniques in the horse. The 13-hectare site with state-of-the-art facilities geared to the welfare of the animals includes a 1600 square-meter indoor riding arena, outdoor jumping arena, and round pen as well as an area for boarding horses.
