If you have been at the All American Quarter Horse Congress in Columbus, Ohio, this week, you’ve seen them there. If not, you’ll have about 30 more chances to meet the Equine Sports Medicine veterinary team members within the next year.


The team is comprised of veterinarians and technicians who traverse the country each year setting up shop at major horse shows to serve the show exhibitors’ horse heath care needs. The veterinarians’ “shop” is in one of the two tractor trailers emblazoned with the Equine Sports Medicine logo. Alan Donnell, DVM, a private practitioner in Pilot Point, Texas, which is also the home base for the two rigs, and Kurt Heite, DVM, also based in Texas, spearheaded the idea in 2002.
