Dr. Andrew Currie

Silver Spur

Born in Philadelphia, his heart has always been in Texas and his devotion to the horse and the sport of rodeo is paramount.

The influences of his grandfather, the Cow Town Rodeo in New Jersey, and his desire to be a calf roper made him follow his dream to be an equine veterinarian. He performed his undergraduate studies at Rutgers, Colorado State University and earned his degree from University of Pennsylvania, New Belton Center. In 1963 he came to Texas and then had the opportunity to go to Lexington, Kentucky to hone his skills in Equine Sports Medicine.

He then returned to Texas to devote his life to the health and soundness of the equine athlete that must perform at top levels of competition. “Every horse that works at a rodeo event is special to me, from the top NFR horse to the little pony that goes to the Little Britches Rodeo”. Fred Whitfield and Joe Beaver are prime examples of Champions the insist that the welfare of their horses come first.

He is a member of the AAEP (served on the Board and several committees), founding member of TEVA, Gold card member of PRCSA, AQHA, HLSR (lifetime member & committee) AVMA, Tejas Vaquero, and is awarded the Equine Practitioner of the Year by the TVMA.

He has owned and been partners of several great horses, NCHA World Champion “Sugar Vaquero”, AQHA World Champion Calf Horse, “Sonita’s Wonder” aka Moon, Reserve World Champion Head Horse “Commander’s Kid”, Top Ten Calf Horse AQHA “Well Woop T Do’ and more.

Dr. Currie and wife Sandy reside on a farm in Hempstead, Texas where the clinic is located with longtime employee Cathy Cribbs. He is the proud father of Kelso Currie and his wife Kristi and an even prouder grandfather of Kade and Kameron of Kingsville, Texas.
