The Arnold Reproduction Center was founded in 1999 by Dr. Leea Arnold. Dr. Arnold was born in Hugo, OK and grew up surrounded by a multitude of livestock and a father who was a veterinarian.

I grew up in Attica, New York, a small, rural community in Western New York. Being passionate about horses at a young age, I became involved in local horse shows and rodeos. I followed my passion south which eventually brought me to Weatherford, Texas. Breeding and raising horses, the equine reproduction industry was a perfect fit. I bring 15 years of experience in equine management and reproduction.
Jennifer Lousha grew up in and around Wise and Parker counties, and was excited to finally fall into the role of a ‘real’ Texan when she started working in the equine industry in late 2008. Living in the midst of some of the finest equine facilities in the county, she jokes of being able to enjoy ranching without having the chores involved. As office manager, she is committed to handling the details of your breeding in a courteous and professional manner so you don’t have to worry.
