Deer Creek Equine has two full time veterinarians on staff to assist you with you horse’s care.  We also have 2 staff members to assist in scheduling and answer any questions you have.



Sierra Poston is the Office Manager. She was born and raised in Powhatan, Va and has ridden horses ever since she could stand on two feet. Her first job was at Level Green Riding School in 2009 where she gained experience and knowledge working with horses under Pat Betts. During high school, she was an active rider for Level Green’s AIRC team where she was Secretary and Co-Captain in her Junior and Senior year. After graduating from Powhatan High School, she attended Longwood University where she worked towards her degree in Communication Studies. While at Longwood, she rode for Winter Hill’s IHSA team. In her spare time she enjoys riding and showing her horse Dane, going on adventures with her Golden Retriever and Australian Shepherd, Henry and Kila, and spending quality time with her family.



Mickey is our littlest herd member. He came to the clinic in May of 2015 through Powhatan Equine Rescue League as a 1 year old stud colt. The plan was for him to find an adoptive family after he was gelded. However, while he waited for the procedure, Dr Arledge fell in love with him and decided to adopt him herself. Mickey has since settled in and has become the clinic mascot. He   made his first public appearance at the 2015 Powhatan Christmas parade. He always loves to meet new people and enjoys running around & kicking up his hooves.
