We can customize the treatment plan that will best suit your horse’s needs. Whether your horse is grazing in the field or performing at the highest levels, we can create a plan to make your horse sound and ready to perform.

  • Full Lameness Exams
  • Digital Radiographs

Performance horses can be affected by one or multiple physical problems. Sometimes, their training regimen can also become a performance concern. When your horse’s performance declines, we take great care in figuring out the physical issue that could be the root of the problem. There are several areas that could lead to decline in performance such as:

  • Vision
  • Dental Problems
  • Upper Airway & Lung
  • Lameness
  • Many Others

Let us work with you and your horse so that they can reach their peak performance!
