Meet our veterinarians!


 

New to endurance riding?

A great way to get in to this sport is to enter one of our fun rides, they are set up just like an endurance ride but they are only ~9-15 miles and just one loop, but you will learn about vet checks, vet cards, rules, how to “vet your horse in” to the ride, and how to “vet out” for completion etc.  We are very patient with this group of riders and happy to answer questions.  On top of that, you will be surrounded by more experienced endurance riders doing the 25-50-75-100 mile rides, so you can observe and volunteer and learn everything you need to know in order to start bumping up in the mileage categories or get competitive.  These rides are gorgeous so you and your horse will have a blast, all you need is basic, independent trail-riding skills (helmets are required for fun riders.)
