the american association
of equine practitioners
Airing Friday, May 25, 2018
There are guests whose dedication -- to horses and their well-being, to educating and supporting equestrians worldwide, to devoting their professional life to genuinely making a difference -- is terrifically inspirational and serves to reinforce my respect for my fellow horse enthusiasts, and my gratitude to be part of this remarkable community.
And then there’s David Foley, the Executive Director of the American Association of Equine Practitioners. In addition to his work at the AAEP, he’s very active within the equine, veterinary, and association communities. Just some of the organizations he’s supported include the American Horse Council, the National Thoroughbred Racing Association, PATH International, the Racetrack Chaplaincy of America, the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance’s advisory board, and both the American and the Kentucky Societies of Veterinary Medical Association Executives.
In short, David has focused a significant portion of his career improving the lives and well-being of horses and of their human caretakers through his work and his extraordinary volunteerism... Perhaps providing a remarkable example of how we, too, might help make a difference in the equine community.
