About Us


A lifelong horseman and established veterinarian, Burke Equine Therapy was born out of Dr. Stowe Burke’s desire to provide comprehensive inpatient rehabilitation services to all equine athletes. After 20 years on the racetrack working with winners of major races worldwide, Dr. Burke now applies his extensive knowledge of lameness, sports medicine, and cutting-edge regenerative therapies to horses from all disciplines. Set within a bucolic 110 acres in Saratoga Springs, Dr. Burke and his team are on-site 24/7, and have established Burke Equine as the most attentive, collaborative, and thorough rehabilitation facility in the area. From veterinary services and post-surgery care to pre-training and conditioning, Burke Equine understands the importance of identifying and treating veterinary issues quickly and throughly. We are committed to the wellbeing and performance of your equine athlete.


Dr. Stowe Burke, DVM was born in Saratoga Springs and is a graduate of Tufts University School of Veterinary Medicine. His grandfather, the late Robert J. “Bobby” Burke (1925-2017) was influential in Dr. Stowe Burke’s life and nurtured his love of horses and horsemanship. Mr. Burke was an iconic horseman in a variety of disciplines, including hunters, jumpers, racing and breeding and was inducted into the Show Jumping Hall of Fame in 2001. Stowe has continued the family legacy through a lifetime of involvement in many different facets of the equine industry: broodmares, foaling, yearling sales, polo, show jumping, and racing. As a racetrack veterinarian, he worked with the nation’s top trainers on horses who went won to win the Kentucky Derby, the Dubai World Cup, and many Breeders’ Cup races. Stowe lives on the Burke Equine facility with his wife Caroline and two children, Minnie and Henry.
