The following is more information about Dr. Agne from the Rood and Riddle Saratoga web site:
Robert Agne, DVM
Dr. Robert Agne grew up in St.Louis, MO and began riding hunter ponies at an early age. He continued riding through high school and began competing in dressage and combined training events. Upon graduating from high school he moved to Virginia to work in the hunter-jumper business. He also worked for a number of sport horse trainers on the East Coast and in 1991 started his own training business in Greensboro, North Carolina. As a trainer, he became interested in shoeing and foot problems as well as the veterinary/farrier relationship. In 1996, he began attending the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. In 1999 he was accepted into the North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine and completed the farrier program at Cornell University in Ithaca NY. After receiving his veterinary degree in 2003 he started a podiatry internship at Rood and Riddle Equine Hospital. Following completion of the internship in 2004 he stayed on as a veterinary podiatrist.

Dr. Bryan Fraley has been proudly affiliated with the Hagyard Equine Medical Institute since 2009. Bryan was born in Central Kentucky but was raised on a commercial cattle ranch in Western Colorado. He started shoeing his own ranch horses at the age of 15 which quickly morphed into a fulltime shoeing business. He received his DVM from Colorado State University in 2004. Following an internship and employment at a large referral Equine hospital, he established Fraley Equine Podiatry. He and his team have been providing quality podiatry care nationally and internationally since 2009. Fraley Equine Podiatry has grown from just Bryan and his bookkeeper/mother to 11 talented and dedicated employees in only 5 years. Bryan especially enjoys treating Thoroughbred broodmares with foot problems as they often become long term patients. He gets a great deal of satisfaction seeing their new foals go on to become successful racehorses. Bryan is actively involved in the racing industry and can be found most Saturday mornings watching one of his horses work at the training center. In late August he and his wife Peden had their first child Adeline. Lately he is enjoying traveling less and spending time with Peden and Addie.
Dr. Cruise was born and raised in southern Mississippi, and later went on to attend both undergraduate and veterinary school at Mississippi State University. He also attended Oklahoma Horseshoeing School after his freshman year at MSU. He went on to receive his Certified Farrier accreditation from the American Farrier’s Association during his senior year of veterinary school. After graduating in 2013 from MSU’s College of Veterinary Science he took an associate position with Southern Equine Associates in Pilot Point, TX. Dr. Cruise joined the team at Fraley Equine Podiatry in June, 2014. He has a special interest in sport horses, western performance horses and laminitis. He enjoys team roping and working his Catahoula dogs.
