Horse Shows by the Bay Welcomes Official Horse Show Veterinarians from Hagyard Equine Medical Institute

Traverse City, MI - July 1, 2009 - Horse Sports by the Bay, Inc. is pleased to welcome the official horse show veterinarians for the 2009 Horse Shows by the Bay Equestrian Festival from Hagyard Equine Medical Institute's Sport Horse Program. Horse Shows by the Bay is held in beautiful Traverse City, MI, at the Flintfields Horse Park, and runs July 8 - August 2, 2009.

Hagyard Equine Medical Institute, one of the leading providers of equine healthcare, offers veterinary service to horse shows through the Hagyard Sport Horse program. This division of the Hagyard Equine Medical Institute specializes in the care and maintenance of show horse athletes, bringing the same quality of treatment to sport horses that the institute has provided for the race horse and breeding industries. The Hagyard Sport Horse program incorporates comprehensive services, therapies and performance horse management to serve horses that compete across the country on a national level. The program is led by FEI-accredited equine veterinarian Duncan Peters, DVM, MS.

Hagyard Sport Horse veterinarians, on site at major shows, represent an extension of the Lexington, KY, practice where more than 60 veterinarians excel in various medical and surgical specialties - thus creating a virtual "home away from home" for equine care. There will be two veterinarians from Hagyard Equine Medical Institute's Sport Horse Program attending Horse Shows by the Bay this year, which will be Drs. Holly Schmitt and Heather Woodruff.

Dr. Andy Clark, CEO of Hagyard Equine Medical Institute explained the Sport Horse program, stating, "This summer we have official horse show veterinarians at the three weeks of the Horse Shows by the Bay series in Traverse City, as well many of the Kentucky Horse Shows. In our Sport Horse Program, we've developed a system for exhibitors so they can have continuity in the care of their horses. We want people to know that we don't practice by the 'gladiator strategy' and steal other veterinarians' clients. When we are at shows, we work with our clients' at-home veterinarians, so these vets don't have to start from scratch when the horses return home. Our Sport Horse veterinarians communicate with the home-based veterinarians about the horse's condition and discuss a treatment plan together."

Dean Rheinheimer, President of Horse Sports by the Bay, Inc. and Show Manager of this year's Horse Shows by the Bay Equestrian Festival, is happy to have Hagyard's experienced veterinarians on hand. "Having the Hagyard Sport Horse Team of Vets on site gives us the peace of mind knowing that our client's horses are in the best capable hands possible," Rheinheimer stated.

The 2009 Horse Shows by the Bay Equestrian Festival will be held at the Flintfields Horse Park in scenic Traverse City, MI, beginning July 8 and running through August 2, 2009. The hunter/jumper series will take place from July 8 - July 26, with feature events including the weekly Show Jumping Grand Prix, Hunter Classics, the Hunter Derby, and the HJAM Equitation Finals. Dressage and polo events are scheduled for July 29 - August 2.
