Since the 1960s, HBLB has supported post-graduate education for qualified veterinary surgeons to further their equine career through higher clinical or research qualifications. In the last 20 years, over £7m has been invested to maintain a pool of highly skilled equine veterinary researchers and clinicians.
The recipients of HBLB education awards have included a number of full professors and senior lecturers in veterinary schools, many senior posts in industry and government and numerous clinical veterinary surgeons in both university and private practice.
Equine research leaders and industry figures who are former HBLB Scholars include the Director of the Weipers Centre for Equine Welfare at the University of Glasgow, Professor and Head of School of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Surrey and Head of the Large Animal Hospital at the University of Edinburgh.
In practice, former HBLB Scholars include the Managing Partner of Rossdale & Partners Veterinary Surgeons, Newmarket and leading veterinary surgeons at Sussex Equine Hospital and Three Counties Equine Hospital, as well as senior veterinarians at the university equine hospitals.
