Chris White, DVM

Doctor Chris White When Dr. White asked his parents for riding lessons at age five, they assumed it was a phase. One horse trailer, two decades, and three horses later, they are starting to realize the horse thing is here to stay! Chris grew up in Gardiner, Maine, where he would spend his summers competing at barrel races across the state. Horse ownership, from putting weight on a hard-keeper to rehabbing his lame barrel horse, showed Chris that he could turn his passion into a livelihood.

At 18, he moved to Canada where he would receive his Bachelor of Science in Biology from the University of Prince Edward Island. He would also become heavily involved in the PEI horse community. While attending the Atlantic Veterinary College, he discovered his love for not only lameness, but also dentistry, geriatric care, and (most surprisingly) eye problems.

Dr. White joined the Equine Clinic at OakenCroft, where he practiced in the Capital District of New York, as well as the Berkshires of Massachusetts. While Dr. White loved the performance medicine he practiced outside Saratoga, he much preferred his weekly visits to local boarding barns where he developed a relationship with both the horses and clients.

In his free time, Chris enjoys riding and spending time with his horses Copper, Gentry and Joe, reluctantly visiting the gym, belting the hits of the ‘70s at the local karaoke bar, and visiting his girlfriend in Nova Scotia, Canada.
