PENNSYLVANIA EQUESTRIAN
On Tuesday, October 6, at
6:30 p.m., Dr. Nikki Scherrer,
Ophthalmology Resident, will
discuss a veterinarian’s perspec-
tive on common medical issues
that arise at horse shows in her
talk, “From Trainer to Veteri-
narian: Things I Wish I Knew.”
The presentation is part of the
First Tuesday Lecture Series at
Penn Vet’s New Bolton Center,
382 West Street Road, Kennett
Square, PA.
The series offers free lectures
to the public on equine topics
on the first Tuesday of selected
months. The lectures take place
in New Bolton Center’s Alum-
ni Hall. Due to limited seating,
reservations are recommended

During her talk, Scherrer
will cover issues that can arise
at horse shows including: med-
ications, maintenance, emergen-
cy situations, and regulations
(and recent consequences of
these).
Currently in her third year
as a large animal Ophthalmol-
ogy Resident at New Bolton
Center, Scherrer graduated from
Purdue University College of
Veterinary Medicine in her
home state of Indiana in 2011.
She then completed year-long
internships at both Rood and
Riddle Equine Hospital (Lex-
ington, KY) and New Bolton

Scherrer showed American
Saddlebreds before moving into
the hunter/jumper arena. While
in high school and college, she
helped manage stabling for a
show horse company while riding
and showing.
