Dr. Betsy believes in working hard and collaborating with everyone involved in the horse’s life to make a plan for the future that best supports each individual horse’s needs and health. Her focus is always the horse and what is best for the horse.

    Dr. Betsy grew up active in agriculture on her family’s dairy farm. She had the privilege of riding and bonding with several special horses in the eventing world and Pony Club.
