Dr. Scott Fleming, originally from Northeast Texas, grew up riding Western performance Quarter Horses and working with cattle. Upon graduating high school, Dr. Fleming attended farrier school and maintained a quarter horse-centric farrier business in Northeast and central Texas until moving to Lexington. He also served in the Marine Corps Infantry for four years.
Fleming graduated from veterinary school at Texas A&M University in 2013. He then completed an internship at Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital in 2013-2014 and continued at the hospital as a fellow. Following his fellowship, Dr. Fleming joined the practice as an associate veterinarian, and in 2020 he became a shareholder at Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital.
Outside of Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital, Fleming enjoys spending time on the farm with his wife, Tina, and their two children, Callie and Case. A special interest for Dr. Fleming is participating in Equitarian Initiative trips to Central America to help working equids in the region.
