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.

We received such amazing feedback from the faculty and students which provides even more impetus for us to plan a larger 'community partner' event where we invite the local folks.... I hope we can still consider something in line with your anniversary celebration next year. I am really sorry I wasn't there to greet you all and that I missed your presentation Jochen; I have heard so many wonderful thing about how engaging your lecture was and how impressed the students were. This is so important to their learning and I'm certain it will help shape their professional practice. Kindest regards, Tina
