Dr. Arnold has enjoyed wonderful experiences throughout her career. Beginning in 1993 she graduated from the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. She then began her professional career as an Equine Medicine and Surgery intern near Calgary, Alberta. Upon completion, she practiced for two years, following Thoroughbred race horses between Calgary and Edmonton. An opportunity at Woodbine Racetrack in Toronto, Ontario followed. She then spent four years as a race track practitioner, and with the Toronto Equine Hospital assisting with surgery and anesthesia.
In 1999 Dr. Arnold was offered opportunities in Louisville, Kentucky. She moved to the US and went forward to practice for eight years on both high-quality race horses and performance horses. Desiring to move back out west, in 2008 Dr. Arnold and her daughter Melissa settled in Western Washington. She loves Seattle and the surrounding area and considers this area home!
Dr. Arnold has experienced many great opportunities as an equine veterinarian. Certification with the International Veterinary Chiropractic Association occurred in 2009. In 2010, she was the veterinarian for the Canadian Combined Driving Team at the FEI World Equestrian Games in Lexington, KY. She has presented at various local equine groups and presented at the American Association of Equine Practitioners Annual Convention in 2014.
Born, raised, and educated in Portland, Oregon, Dr. Heather Wenzell developed a passion for the equine industry during her preteen years when she involved herself in three-day eventing and show-jumping. Her continued success at horse shows throughout North America ultimately led to her specializing in show-jumping and breeding Hanoverian sport horses.
Dr. Wenzell has ridden for a number of years as a Northwest A-Circuit Grand Prix rider, training under three-time Olympian Kevin Freeman, and later under Hap Hansen, a renowned US Grand Prix competitor. She continued to ride at this level while receiving a Bachelor’s degree in Biology from the University of Portland. She currently trains and competes under the tutelage of Phillip Cillis of Westwood at Rancho Riding Club in San Diego, California.
In 1997, while continuing to compete throughout the Northwest and California, Dr. Wenzell began veterinary school at Oregon State University. Upon receiving a Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine with a focus on equine medicine, surgery, and dentistry in 2001, she received state licensure in Arizona, California, Oregon, and Washington. Years of training and experience working as an associate equine practitioner for practices in both Arizona and California enabled her to move back home to the northwest in June of 2005. Soon after, she opened Spinnaker Farm Equine Veterinary Clinic while living in Lacey, Washington.
Spinnaker Farm Equine Veterinary Clinic is affiliated with the American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP), the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), and Dr. Wenzell maintains memberships in the USA Equestrian Federation, the Pacific Coast Horse Show Association (PCHA) and the American Hanoverian Society.
