In the almost 15 years that I have known Dr. Belsito, I have been consistently impressed at her advocation for the horses and ability to see the big picture. This talent allows Dr. Belsito to see cases from start to finish, integrate practitioners with other specialties, utilizing the team approach in the horses' best interest. She understands where the horses need to be in order to perform at the desired level and seems to be able accurately determine which horses will be able to reach goals and which will not. This is a tremendous value-saving time and money in the long run. I believe Dr. Belsito has found her niche with her sport horse practice incorporating nutrition, physical therapy and rehabilitation tools.

I have known Dr. Kerri Belsito since 1989. During this time I have watched her choose a career, pursue her education and never stop learning. The contributions Dr. Belsito makes on a daily basis to the equine community are admirable. Although her main practice is not in New England, I often use Dr. Belsito as a resource. The power of observation is a strong suit of Dr. Belsito's. She is able to question a situation to obtain a pertinent history and make a short list of items for us to address which is something even talented Docs who have the advantage of standing in my barn aisle have been unable to do. Save yourself from headaches and add Dr. Belsito to your team!
