Randy Riedinger grew up on a horse ranch in North Dakota and competed in rodeo most of his life. He spent many years training and competing in cutting, reining, and roping. Randy lived in Denver, Colorado, from 1984 until 1990. He then moved to Cottonwood, California where he started his practice in Equine Dentistry in 1992 and was awarded Master Certified Equine Dentist in 1999.
Over the years he has gained a great understanding of the problems that can occur in a horse’s mouth, often hindering health and peak performance. Because of his deep love for horses he has dedicated the last 18 years to studying and correcting malocclusions and abnormalities in equine. He remains at the forefront of the industry with his development of instruments, techniques and procedures. Randy is known for perfecting the process of inter-oral molar extraction, done on horses of all ages and the development of the Riedinger Procedure, which is a proven method that can correct a major parrot mouth in most young horses. This procedure has been published in the 1998 version of Oral Biomechanics and Dental Equilibration and Equidae, used at many institutions of equine dentistry.
