Professor Derek Knottenbelt's expertise in equine internal medicine is recognised internationally. He is a Diplomate of the European College of Equine Internal Medicine and of the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine and held a personal chair at the University of Liverpool until his retirement in 2010. He is now a consultant professor at the University of Glasgow and has published a plethora of journal articles and something crazy like 12 textbooks. He received the Animal Health Trust Scientific Award in 2003, the BEVA Blue Cross Welfare Award in 2004, and received an OBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours of 2005 for his services to Equine Medicine.
Professor Derek Knottenbelt founded Equine Medical Solutions in 2016 to ensure that owners and vets would still be able to get high quality advice and treatments following the closure of the sarcoid referral service at the Liverpool Vet School which Derek had provided for over 25 years.
Derek founded Vets with Horsepower in 2009 and the first trip took place in 2010. The first year he had ridden a total of 500 miles before we left on tour, and a week later had increased his total mileage by 1000 miles. As Josh describes Derek, he is a "force of nature" and is tireless in his efforts to support equine welfare.
