Dr. Bryan Fraley


Bryan Fraley, DVM

Dr. Fraley was born in Central Kentucky but was raised on a commercial cattle ranch in Western Colorado.  He has been shoeing horses since age 15 after being introduced to the trade by local rancher Mr. Bill Walk.  He received his DVM from Colorado State University in 2004.  Upon graduation he completed a one year internship at Pioneer Equine Hospital in Oakdale, California.  Following his internship he spent 2 ½ years as an associate in the podiatry department at Rood and Riddle Equine Hospital in Lexington, Kentucky.  Dr. Fraley left Rood and Riddle to eventually open Fraley Equine Podiatry.  Fraley Equine Podiatry is based out of the Hagyard Equine Medical Institute and is proud to be affiliated with the oldest and largest Equine hospital in the world.

Dr. Fraley sits on the Board of Directors for the Kentucky Equine Humane Center and is also fortunate to work on many of horseracing’s heroes that are retired at Old Friend’s in Georgetown, Kentucky.  Dr. Fraley has been actively involved in the AFA/AAEP Farrier Short Course which teaches basic farriery and promotes the Veterinary/Farrier relationship in U.S. Veterinary schools.  In the last year Dr. Fraley and his team have worked in conjunction with Pfizer Animal Health to put on 8 hands on  podiatry clinics at veterinary hospitals across the country.  These clinics have been designed to foster the veterinary/farrier relationship while teaching modern techniques of Equine podiatry.  His truck and shop are always open to visiting veterinarians, farriers, and students alike.
