Mission Statement

Providing a Higher Level of Care to Horses in Western NC

Welcome to Higher Ground Equine.  We have been providing a "higher" level of care to the horses of WNC since July 1, 2013.  Dr. Williamson is a licensed equine veterinarian and was also certified in Animal Chiropractic by the International Veterinary Chiropractic Association.  His areas of interest include lameness and performance evaluation, chiropractic evaluation, podiatry, dentistry, and reproduction.  Areas of Service include: Asheville, Arden, Black Mountain, Brevard, Burnsville, Candler, Canton, Fletcher, Hendersonville, Marshall, Mars Hill, Waynesville, and Weaverville.   If you are looking for an equine veterinarian in Asheville or surrounding areas, please feel free to call to discuss your needs.

With the current wild fires and poor air quality in Western NC, be sure to monitor your horses for coughing and respiratory issues, and avoid prolonged or heavy exercise.

Good news!  Now we can perform fecal egg counts in house to guide you on a control plan.

Higher Ground Equine’s mission is to practice the highest level of care for our equine patients by providing advanced diagnostic and treatment techniques, while educating and communicating openly with their owners and caretakers.
