60 Faces of the Equine Veterinary Profession

BEVA is 60 years old this year and to celebrate we are exploring the successes of the equine veterinary community in the last 60 years by highlighting 60 individuals who have inspired, developed and advanced the profession.

These 60 faces are just a few of the many outstanding people who have left an indelible mark on the profession and whose actions complement BEVA’s work in championing progress and/or diversity.

BEVA members nominated hundreds of suitable individuals and the Trustees whittled the list down to 60...not a “Top 60” but examples of the breadth of people who have impacted the equine veterinary profession.
