Dr. Nancy Loving’s intense interest in horses began at an early age and continues to figure prominently in both her professional and personal life. She has ridden dressage and evented, and she discovered the unique challenges of distance riding in 1983. Since graduating from Colorado State University Veterinary School in 1985, Dr. Loving has practiced equine medicine and surgery exclusively, currently at her own Loving Equine Clinic in Boulder, Colorado. She has been involved in the endurance world as an FEI-sanctioned veterinarian and as team vet for the USEF national endurance squad, bringing to these pursuits her knowledge gleaned from many miles and years spent in the saddle training and competing her own endurance horses.

Dr. Loving regularly writes for The Horse and Horse Illustrated magazines.
