I had a great experience at the large animal hospital with Dr. Morton and the wonderful staff. Iris came to the clinic with lameness in her back and hind limb. The exam was very thorough, by examining her and riding her in the fabulous new riding ring at the clinic. 
Dr. Morton took the time to include my daughter Caitlin in the exam, this was a very important aspect as Caitlin is the one who rides and shows Iris. After completing our exam and following through with Dr. Morton’s recommendations, Iris went on to finish 3rd at Morgan World Championships in the English Pleasure Division in Oklahoma City.

Thank you!
