Jeremy Naylor has a wealth of knowledge and experience. After
graduating from Veterinary School at the University of Bristol and
spending time in equine practice, Jeremy crossed the Atlantic where he
spent several years at Washington State University gaining an advanced
training in equine exercise physiology and internal medicine.
return to the UK after completing his PhD at Bristol, he worked for the
Valley Equine Hospital in Lambourn before joining the champion National
Hunt trainer Martin Pipe for two seasons. Here, Jeremy received an
insight into the art of training winners while working as resident vet
to the stable.
Jeremy then returned
to the University of Bristol to take up the post of Director of the Jim
Joel Equine Sports Medicine Centre.
Whilst at the centre
he pioneered work investigating poor athletic performance using the
latest developments in exercise science and was sent cases from top
trainers around the country, when their horses had inexplicably failed
to reach their expected potential.
As if that weren’t enough experience he has also enjoyed
the thrill of racing from the front line, having ridden (and won) as an
amateur jockey. In fact, it was after just three months as a trainer
that Jeremy’s dedication was rewarded with his first winner in the shape
of Daphne’s Doll at Lingfield Park.
