Choosing the right name for any business is a serious decision, but since all three guideposts for the Cardenas endeavor began with the letter H, the choice was obvious. We were off to a good start. The year was 1987.

Home would be the foundation
Horses, the building blocks
Hope, the very mortar holding it together.

But was it just a coincidence only 3 horses stepped off the plane from Colombia with the family that same year?

Fast forward ten years.

The original family endeavor (3H Equestrian Center) was thriving when the independent 3H Vet was born at the kitchen table following NCSU College of Veterinary Medicine graduation, Today, 3H Equine Hospital and Mobile Veterinary Services is a multi-doctor practice, licensed in NC and Fl covering the entire spectrum of equine medicine with the exception of open surgeries.

And, is it just a coincidence that 3 doctors tend to the horse patients in the practice? Or that each and every member of the 3H team practices good Horsemanship as well.

Fast forward another decade.

Founding 3H Equine Rehab as another independent, component for lameness, conditioning and physical therapy was the next natural step. Similarly, 3H Sport Horses, LLC is skillfully coming of age.

Today, just as the number 3 and letter H in the name continue to run strong and ring true, so have they evolved.

Horses are the driver,

Health is our veterinary mission, and

Humans (staff and clients, alike) who love these animals, are our inspiration.

Horses, Health and Humans have become the 3H focus

because the horse deserves it.

These will forever be the 3H focus because the horse deserves it.
