Jeremy Naylor

Dr 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. 

On his 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.
