Roaring Fork Equine Medical Center was founded in 2017 by Dr. Eric Everett, offering a state of the art facility for horses and their owners with brand new, hospital-based ultrasound machines for exceptional imaging of tendons, ligaments, abdomens and hearts. Nestled just south of Glenwood Springs, Colorado, in a picturesque spot, our facility’s location allows easy access for horse trailers just off Highway 82.
Our Mission and Vision
Our mission is to provide an exceptional, technically advanced facility, staffed with talented doctors and technicians focused on total horse care. We strive to maintain industry leadership in the equine medical community by bringing value to each customer, exceeding our clients’ expectations. We do this while concurrently advancing and adopting the most innovative medical and surgical techniques in horse veterinary care.
Our vision here at the Roaring Fork Equine Medical Center is to continually invest in and support the local and regional horse community while establishing a legacy for providing the finest quality equine medical and surgical care.

Our ability to provide very personalized, hands-on care, cultivating specific treatment plans for each horse, with the horse and the owner’s best interests in mind, is what sets us apart.
