An Edinburgh vet has received a special award from a horse welfare charity for her pioneering rehabilitation work with rescue cases.

Emma Jones was awarded the International League for the Protection of Horses (ILPH) award of merit citation at the ILPH seminar last week.

Since 1999 Emma has been the ILPH resident vet in equine orthopaedics and ILPH lecturer in the same at the Royal ‘Dick’ School of Veterinary Science at Edinburgh and has worked closely with the ILPH’s Scottish rescue centre, Belwade Park.
