Dr. Bremser is the quintessential Equine practitioner. Her clients appreciate her caring and personable stall side manner. She is a horse person and therefore understands the needs of both the performance horse and rider. A better, more caring, and more knowledgeable equine practitioner is hard to find.-
Dr. Wentz graduated from NC State University in 2008. Following graduation, she completed a one year internship at Triangle Equine under an internal medicine specialist. At the completion of her internship, she was hired on as a full time associate. Dr. Wentz struck out on her own and opened Dogwood Mobile Equine in May 2011.
Kate grew up in Kansas City riding horses and helping with her family’s frozen custard shop before moving to North Carolina in 1996. She attended high school in Charlotte and then moved to Raleigh to earn a BS in Microbiology at NC State. Kate has been riding and showing horses since the age of 3. She began as a pony hunter and switched to eventing as a teenager with her horse, Khali Kizzan a 16 year old QH/Arab cross. Kate and Khali competed up through the levels together, earning a “B” rating in the United States Pony Club. Khali moved with Kate to NC in 1996 and in 1997 was sold into the life of a retiree. Kate continued to ride through college on the NC State Dressage Team finishing 7th in the region as an individual at 1st level. After vet school, Kate took ownership of Chosen Conquest, a 4 year old TB colt who had been a patient of hers while on rotation. Chosen needed several months of rest and rehab followed by some training with Genevieve Andrews of Epona Equine Services. In 2009 Chosen was sold as a children’s’ hunter and is doing very well in his new home!
In the fall of 2008, Kate met Alvin aka Action 42. A former upper level dressage horse, Alvin was in need of a person of his own and a new career path. Kate and Alvin have formed a deep bond through cross training and now compete in dressage, eventing and jumpers. In 2010 Alvin and Kate were the Hopeful Jumper champions at the Finally Farm jumper series. In 2011, Kate is hoping that she and Alvin can earn the required scores for her USDF Bronze Medal as well as qualifying for the GAIG Championships in the fall.
As a competitor herself, Dr. Wentz is extremely familiar with the trials and tribulations of the adult amateur rider. Kate is passionate about helping others like her achieve their goals with their horses through proper preventative care and sports medicine. Kate can often be found at local hunter/jumper shows, events and dressage shows so please come by and say hello or ask questions
