The clinic is located in Aiken, South Carolina. In the late 19th century, Aiken gained notoriety as a winter playground for the rich and famous. This “Winter Colony”, often credited to Thomas Hitchcock, Sr. and William C. Whitney, became a seasonal home for many notable people. Evidence from those historic days of old can be found in Aiken’s Hitchcock Woods, the largest urban forest in the nation, offers the public unique trail riding privileges. Numerous disciplines are represented in Aiken lending to a truly unique equestrian community. Among these include, fox hunting, eventing, polo, combined driving, hunter/jumper, dressage, cutting, barrel racing, and thoroughbred training to name a few. In addition, Aiken’s close proximity to the metropolitan offerings in Columbia, Augusta, Charleston and Atlanta make this area a best-of-both-worlds place to live.
Established in 2005, Performance Equine Vets has grown into one of the largest clinics in the south eastern United States. A state of the art surgical center, and extensive reproduction facility equipped with our own ICSI lab make Performance Equine Vets an excellent choice for professional horse owners and trainers seeking total care.
