Jessica DiNapoliThe field of Equine Sports Therapy and Rehabilitation has proven itself as an effective compliment to Veterinary medicine, and is growing in popularity across the United States. Using non-invasive techniques, a trained therapist can provide secondary care procedures to assist, and enhance, the healing process of an injured horse. Jessica DiNapoli first found her passion for the Equine industry within the Animal Science program at UNH. After graduation, she continued her studies at Midway College in Kentucky where she worked and trained under Mimi Porter, owner and head therapist at one of the most successful Equine therapy practices in the US. Today, Jessica travels across New England providing therapy and care for injured horses, and continues to come back to UNH to talk with students about this ever expanding field.
