Dr. Erica Tolar


Dr. Erica Tolar took her first saddleseat riding lesson at the age of seven.  It was love at first sight and she has continued riding American Saddlebred horses competitively ever since then.  She  grew up on a large horse boarding and training farm in the Chicago suburbs and has shown American Saddlebred horses across the Midwest and Kentucky. 


​Dr. Tolar received her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 2003 from the University of Illinois before moving to Tennessee to complete a rigorous internship in small animal medicine at the University of Tennessee.  Once finished with her internship, she returned to the University of Illinois and completed a 3-year ophthalmology residency.  She is board certified and a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists.


Dr. Erica Tolar and her husband Matt moved to Simpsonville, Kentucky to be in the heart of Saddlebred horse country.  The American Saddlebred is near and dear to her heart and she is an avid equestrian winning three World's Championship titles at the Kentucky State Fair.
