Dr. Yates


Dr. Angie Yates was born and raised in Indianapolis, IN and is the daughter of Robert and Theresa Corn. The Corns ran a small Quarter horse breeding farm in the 1980s and 1990s, and Dr. Yates and her siblings had the opportunity to be involved with horses at a very young age. Her childhood included showing on the Quarter Horse circuit in diverse events from halter to barrel racing, in addition to the all-around classes. Dr. Yates also participated in 10 years of 4-H in Marion County Horse and Pony. She attended IUPUI for a BS in biology, and an MS in molecular biology, before attending veterinary school.

Following graduation from the University of Illinois, College of Veterinary Medicine in 2008, Dr. Yates accepted a hospital internship with Peterson and Smith Equine Hospital, located in Ocala, FL. Peterson and Smith is one of the largest equine private practice hospitals in the country, and the most established equine hospital in Ocala. During her internship, Dr. Yates rotated through emergency, surgery, medicine, anesthesia and night duty. She was responsible for daily physical examination and care of hospitalized patients, as well as assisting the board-certified clinicians with appointments. For elective and emergency surgical cases, Dr. Yates alternated between acting as the assistant surgeon or the anesthetist. She was also the primary clinician for in house patients during overnight rotations. During her internship, Dr. Yates developed a strong interest in lameness work, and was able to train in diagnostic procedures involving some of the country’s best race and show horses.

Following the completion of her internship in June 2009, Dr. Yates made the decision to return to her hometown of Indianapolis and begin her own mobile equine veterinary practice. In addition to providing veterinary services in central Indiana, Dr. Yates also regularly travels to shows in the Midwest to both compete and act as a competition veterinarian. She currently competes in the amateur jumper divisions, while the rest of the family continues to concentrate on the AQHA circuit.

Dr. Yates has worked the Kentucky 3 Day Event since 2006, as well as the North American Junior and Young Rider Championships from 2011-2013. Dr. Yates is currently pursuing FEI certification in the disciplines of driving, eventing, and reining. She and her husband, Eric, live on the south side of Indianapolis with their three young daughters.
