Dr. Carol Vischer-Safran, DVM

 

Like Jochen, Dr. Vischer was born in Germany and came to North America in the 1980s not speaking any English! She began her veterinary education at the University of Illinois, graduating in 1992. She spent a year in Arizona for an internship, returning to the University of Illinois to begin a 3-year residency in Internal Medicine. She landed in Upstate New York in 1996, attaining her Diplomate status from the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine (Dipl.ACVIM) in 1997, and started specializing in lameness diagnoses. She finished certification with the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society in 1997 and pursued a further education in spinal manipulation, finishing those requirements in 2000. In October 2000 I started her own clinic – North East Performance Equine.

Dr. Vischer met Jochen through mutual clients in the late 2000s and is closely affiliated with Saddlefit 4 Life training headquarters in NY at the Charlton Equestrian Center. She contributed to Jochen’s book with an insert on “The Horse’s Skin is a Good Indicator of Pain” (Suffering in Silence p.113). She is a strong believer in the Saddlefit 4 Life methodology on saddle fitting for both horse and rider and continues to attend S4L courses whenever her busy schedule allows.

Testimonials

"I attended the Saddlefit 4 Life® Equine Ergonomist Training Course to obtain more information on saddle fitting.  At the time I was having some issues with my horse, who acted uncomfortable under saddle and would occasionally buck at the canter.  The course went above and beyond my expectations of what I would learn in five days.  I was able to go home, evaluate what was causing my horse discomfort, adjust the type of tack I was using, and it fixed his bucking issue on the spot! The class more than paid for itself in that moment and I have Saddlefit 4 Life® to thank for it!"
