DR. FERNANDO CARDENASDr. Fernando Cardenas

Fernando, born and raised on a horse farm in Colombia, SA, still maintains a strong connection to his family’s current breeding/training operation in Florida. His ever-increasing commitment to the rehabilitation of equine lameness and most recent FEI certification as treating veterinarian for international competitions come as a surprise to no one. They are natural complements to his 2016 Olympic qualification with his stallion, Quincy Car. As Practice Owner, he is an active participant in VMG (Veterinary Management Groups) for ongoing improvement of 3H as a business.


DR. LAUREN ZAPPITELLIDr. Courtney Culbertson

Courtney brings a lifetime commitment to horses and a star-studded 8 year career as a vet including work as a solo practitioner. She now looks forward to practicing the medicine she loves in the place she calls home. Since completing her DVM, chiropractic and acupuncture certifications, she has increasingly worked in these complementary therapies. Her gentle demeanor with both people and horses is highly effective.


Dr. Meredith Herdrich

Dr. Meredith Herdrich was born and raised in Northern California and grew up riding and competing on the local hunter/jumper circuit. Meredith earned her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine degree from CSU in 2017 with a professional certification in veterinary medical acupuncture for both large and small animals from CuraCore’s Medical Acupuncture for Veterinarians course. Her devotion to equine acupuncture, sports medicine, and rehabilitation while focusing on healing the bodies and minds of these beautiful souls is her first passion. Her medicine is progressive, but her love and compassion for not only horses, but people, make her an invaluable addition to our practice.


Dr. Megan Radkin

Megan recently obtained her DVM from NC State. She grew up with horses and she realized her true passion for equine podiatry in 2011 when she embarked on a 2 year battle against laminitis in her own horse. Once she started vet school she found an excellent mentor in Dr. Richard Mansmann and she took every opportunity to spend time learning from him and countless other experts at Auburn, Virginia-Maryland, Rood & Riddle, and even in Australia with Dr. Pollitt and Dr. van Eps. She continues to expand on her knowledge to aid in the overall health of the horse.
