The American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP) salutes Clara Mason, DVM, a solo ambulatory practitioner in Winfield, West Virginia, as recipient of the grand prize 2019 Good Works for Horses Award.

Mason is honored for her commitment to at-risk horses in West Virginia by way of strengthened animal cruelty laws and increased enforcement in the state. She was recognized Dec. 8 during the opening session at the AAEP’s 65th Annual Convention, in Denver, Colorado. Mason will receive complimentary registration and a stipend to support travel to the meeting. In addition, the Roane Co. Shelter in Spencer, West Virginia, will receive a $500 donation in Mason’s name.

Throughout 2019, the Good Works for Horses Campaign highlighted selfless acts of service performed by AAEP members.

Nine veterinarians were selected for monthly honors, and their stories were featured on the AAEP website and Facebook page and in its monthly and biweekly newsletters.
