I want everyone at BREC to know that Tabby is THE best vet you could possibly have. Not only does she take wonderful care of my beloved horses and truly cares about them and is so extremely competent. I know she spent far more time with my gang than she had intended but that did not deter her one bit to stay with me to make sure all was well. AND she works so hard. You all probably don t remember that when I first arrived in Va. Jargy was definitely not himself. Two vets told me to put him to pasture he was old. Finally I got ahold of and Tabby who recognized that it was EPM and we started him on medication right away. She saved Jargy s life. I can tell you all I wouldn t have another vet ever.
Thank you very much for the excellent care the BREC staff provided. Please pass along my thanks to Dr. Trostle and most especially the LVTs and staff who took care of Baby Hope!

Thank you so much, Anne, for your speedy reply and your consideration for giving me a little education in the process. This, along with the wonderful Dr. Hecking is the reason I want to be your customer! You all have a wonderful day.
Due to a scheduling mix-up, the stem cell treatment for my horse was due to arrive at BREC before we d had a chance to schedule an appointment for it to be injected. When I was unable to haul my horse from Hanover to Earlysville that day, Dr. Trostle (who had just returned from an out of town conference the night before and who was in the midst of BREC s once a month MRI day) came to us (approximately an hour and a half away) to take care of the procedure. Dr. Trostle and BREC really saved the day by providing above and beyond customer service!
Jewel is doing well so thanks to all at Blue Ridge for taking such good care of her! My trainer and the wonderful people who keep Jewel said that when they arrived at your clinic with Jewel last week, they felt like they were bringing in the President. You all were so on the ball and took charge so quickly!

My daughter s entire world is wrapped around George and everyone there treated him with as much love and TLC as if he was their own. Dr. Stephens and his entire crew were wonderful to us. He was always available to answer questions and offer support and on the days we couldn t be there we would get photos and cute messages from Jaime. As much I don t want to ever be in the situation of needing to come back, I would love to be able to see the crew again! Great people you have there in Charlottesville!
“One year ago, Dr. Trostle did colic surgery on Honor. His recovery wasn’t completely smooth as he relapsed back into reflux mode after we thought he was in the clear. Dr. Trostle thought there was a good chance Honor would recover completely and I’m very happy to report he has. This pic is Honor and I competing at the ODH hunter pace this last weekend. Thanks so much for your wonderful care.”

I am truly appreciative to all that Dr. Moore and everyone at BREC has done to get him healthy and make him a star! He is having a tremendous show season this year.
THANKS to all of you who kept me and my horse Joe ( I m Cotton-Eyed Joe) in your thoughts and prayers after his recent colic. Joe received EXCELLENT care and life-saving surgery from Blue Ridge Equine and Dr. Trostle. I am grateful for the experience of Dr. Trostle, the interns, the great care and frequent communication.

Especially thank Dr. Hecking for being so gentle with Kenny and us. We buried him high on the hill overlooking the barn and pasture he loved so much. We do miss him, but could not keep him comfortable, so there was no other choice. You guys helped to make our journey easier, and we thank you.

And a huge Thank You to the entire staff for all that you do to help owners provide the best care available to our equine friends. Special thanks to Jean who is always calm and efficient no matter how un-calm I might be when a situation seems overwhelming. And a huge Merry Christmas greeting to Dr. Dagner. You continue to take the time to educate, encourage and care about the horses after all these years. I couldn t ask for more! You guys are THE BEST!
Blue Ridge has made, and will continue to make, great things happen for equines and their owners and I believe that is the goal of all veterinary clinics and hospitals. What sets Blue Ridge apart is the feeling that when you take your horse there, everyone you come in contact with responds to you and your horse as if they have a vested interest in the outcome and let me tell you, that feeling matters and it matters a lot. Thanks again for everything,
Kathy and Clara
A great big THANK YOU for all you have done for us. Your service is always extended with ongoing kindness and compassion. We are forever grateful.

Just thought you might like to see pictures of Willie and me checking out the ACTHA trail at the Horse Center. Willie and I are also back to taking dressage lessons, and hope to enter Dressage With a View at the Horse Center on June 30th! Just Intro A and B, but not too shabby for all he has been through. None of this would be possible without all of your hard work, expert care and belief in us. Thank you so much!
I cannot think of a thing (to improve). I was very apprehensive re: my horse s condition and outcome. Everyone understood and did everything possible to accomodate me to ensure a positive outcome and minimize my concern for my horse. It was a great experience
Thanks so much to Dr. Santos. He did a excellent job with my baby gurl Penny today. The staff here is passionate and very professional. They give good detail as to whats going on and how the issue can be treated. Im so thankful for the Doctors and staff at the facility.
Many thanks to Blue Ridge for the care during our mare s pregnancy and after foaling check up .everything went so smoothly!
I just want to thank you guys for all the great care and excellent service that you gave me and Phoenix. You guys always came whenever we needed you. It didn t matter if it was on the weekend or late at night. You always came. You were also very caring sending emails or making calls just to check on how things were going.
I cannot think of anything that you need to do to improve everyone was wonderful! Although I came to you with a heavy heart, you quickly reassured me that this was a situation that you could handle and I was impressed through every step of the surgery and recovery process with your professionalism and kindness. Thank you from me, my daughter, and Gabe!
Last year, just about this time, you treated Farrari for enteritis and gastric ulcers. Successfully. I wanted to let you know that he came through this year s show season beautifully, using the Gastrogard and Smart Gut Ultra protocol. He will continue on the pellets until the end of October so fingers crossed that he will remain stable once those are discontinued. He loves his hay net, the more often the better. And second best, after good health, the earned himself a Top Ten at the Arabian Sport Horse Nationals out of 30 horses!
