Veterinarian gains national honor

Mark Anderson, DVM, of Prescott Animal Hospital must be on the right path, and not just when it comes to riding horses.

The Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International recently presented him the Veterinarian of the Year Award at PATH's international conference Friday in Orlando, Fla.

Horses with HEART in Chino Valley nominated Anderson for the award.

"He exemplifies what it means to be a professional veterinarian; but not only that, he has a deep understanding of how special equines are in therapeutic riding centers," the nomination paperwork for Anderson reads. "His love for the equines he cares for and the overriding reason for helping the special needs community drives him to give his all."

The paperwork states Anderson donates his "time, expertise and expense" to Horses with HEART and to Horses Help in Phoenix.

The national award for Anderson came after he received the award for Region 10, which covers Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, Colorado and Wyoming.

PATH is a federally registered 501(c3) nonprofit that was formed in 1969 as the North American Riding for the Handicapped Association to promote equine-assisted activities and therapies for people with special needs, according to its website.

PATH has nearly 4,500 certified instructors and equine specialists and 850 member centers around the globe. More than 7,500 PATH members help more than 54,000 children and adults with physical, mental and emotional challenges find strength and independence through the power of the horse each year.
