    Dr. Chat Kleinpeter

    Dr. Kleinpeter's involvement with the equine community began at an early age. Reared in a family with deep roots in the Quarter Horse industry, he had the privilege of showing performance horses as a youngster and from there his lifelong love of horses began. A veterinary career was a clear and natural choice for him. Upon graduation from the Louisiana State University School of Veterinary Medicine, he began serving the needs of the Baton Rouge equine community in 1978. With valuable experience in all facets of equine practice, he now places special emphasis and focus in the areas of equine sports medicine and podiatry both locally and on a national level.

She was in charge of the horse's care, from everyday health maintenance, rehabilitation, and major medical emergencies. This provided Caroline the opportunity to work with some of the top equine veterinarians in the country. Before that, she spent over four years in the foaling barn and two years working in the training barn. In her spare time, Caroline competes with her own horses in Arabian and half Arabian shows around the country.
