Dr. Maria Schnobrich grew up in Boston, MA, where visits to her grandparents’ farm and riding lessons sparked her interest in horses and large animals at a young age. Her desire to become an equine veterinarian was cemented while volunteering at Tufts Large Animal Hospital during college summers.

Her internship was at Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital under Dr. Thomas Riddle. She then completed a second year as a resident veterinarian at Shadwell farm with Dr. Riddle.

Since 2012, Dr. Schnobrich has worked as a theriogenologist at Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital with a primary focus on the problem of mares and stallions. She practices both ambulatory reproduction and advanced reproductive techniques. She has been involved in several research projects collaborating with colleagues locally and nationally. Her interests include diagnostic methods for the problem mare, enhancing reproductive success in the mare and stallion and evaluating field data to assess practices that enhance reproductive efficiency.
