About CORE Therapies

Raised in a bustling racing family who saddled Graded Stakes winners for storied owners such as the Farish's, Larkspur Carroll learned to look for the subtleties in a horse's movement to inform how she cared for and trained them at an early age.

Spending her early career as a thoroughbred racetrack practitioner, keeping racehorses healthy was an easy move to make. But as she added manual therapies and other holistic techniques to her sports medicinal knowledge, on top of the years of intuition she built while galloping racehorses, a real program to help horses began to surface; CORE Therapies was born.

Our Providers

Larkspur Carroll, DVM

The founder of CORE Therapies, Dr. Carroll is a lifelong horsewoman from Fair Hill, MD,  spending her formative years galloping and caring for racehorses. 

"I found my calling as a veterinarian so honestly; I was taking biological science classes because they were so engaging and really made sense to me. 


Later, chiropractic translated the study of the biomechanics of the horse into language that made sense for my patients. Studying the subtleties of the horse's patterns and movements was something I was already doing, chiropractic enhanced that study and gave it a voice."

As an Equine Chiropractic Practitioner, she has been praised for her patient approach to therapy, leaving her clients feeling heard and empowered with the knowledge needed to care for their horses going forward. 

Outside of the practice, Dr. Carroll can be found riding out with her daughter and advocating for a cure for pancreatic cancer through her own Team Neigh.

Tiffany Gish, Admin

Tiffany couldn't have known that her life would be forever changed after that first riding lesson at age seven in small-town Rockport, IN. She's pursued a life in support of the horse ever since.

From managing an equine feed store to caring for new mothers and babies at an equine nursery, we are grateful that Tiffany's love of the horse has brought her journey to us. She patiently helps new clients to learn about how therapy can help their animals and provides much-needed hands-on support to our staff.
