My guest today is Dr. Sarah Cohen, and she definitely has a unique perspective on her business as a veterinarian serving the Wellington Florida area, her business website for Equity Performance Equine has the description listed under the subtitle team approach, seamless concierge-style medicine, tailored to the needs of your specific team and program.
Dr. Sarah was recommended to me as a guest by a previous guest, Dr. Andrea Dubé. Dr. Andrea described her as a bad-ass vet that I needed to talk to. I’ll read you her bio from her website, and you’ll start to understand why.
Dr. Sarah Cohen grew up in New Jersey showing in the hunters and equitation before attending Purdue University for her undergraduate training. She graduated from Ross University in June of 2007. Having completed her clinical training at Iowa State University, Sarah then joined Merritt and Associates Equine Hospital outside of Chicago for a one-year intensive internship. Then joining Miller and Associates in 2008, and finally launched Equity Performance Equine in the fall of 2020.
Over her decade plus in practice, Dr. Cohen has developed a client-based consisting of some of the most well-regarded in the Hunter and showjumping community in the country. Dr. Cohen believes passionately in evidence-based medicine and putting the horse’s needs at the fore of all decisions. Since 2010, she has been a regular on the international scene serving as the USEF showjumping team veterinarian in competitions in Spain, Slovakia, Belgium, France, Wellington, and other international competition locales.
Sarah is president of the Northeast Association of Equine Practitioners, having served on the board of directors for five years. She is a member of the USHJA’s horse and riders advocates committee. She lives in Wellington, Florida, and Waccabuc, NY with her husband, Lance and two daughters, Evelyn and June.
Dr. Andrea’s recommendation was spot on and Dr. Sarah did not disappoint. I hope you enjoy the conversation as much as I did.
