Check out the Society for Theriogenology, you can get a lot of info. About repro work and there are job listings, so you can get an idea of the experience you will need. I get to work for the exact kind of person you are describing. His name is Ahmed Tibary, google him, he's amazing. Shebagurl- he did his PhD at Minnesota I believe.
Pretty much what everyone has said is right, vet school then internship then residency and board certification. However, you do not need to be just an equine practitioner. In fact, Dr. Tibary says that every time he gets a call for a reference for a former student, the big equine barns all want to know what comparative experience (especially camellids) the person has. Get all the experience you can, and make sure you understand that the job is 24-7 for at least 9 months out of the year. You can usually squeeze in a vacation if you have associates. I agree, being a theriogenologist would be pretty awesome. Good luck!
