Dr. Revenaugh is the owner of Northwest Equine Performance. He is a renowned expert in the diagnosis and treatment of lameness and performance issues, attracting clients from all over the country. His fascination with equine medicine and competitive performance began long before opening his specialty clinic in Oregon. Though he studied riding under eventing icon Bruce Davidson and spent several years in human medical research, his passion was always focused on helping owners and horses maximize their performance potential. He pursued that passion at the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine, graduating in 1991.
In 1997, Dr. Revenaugh took his first trip as official USET Team Veterinarian, traveling to Germany for a pairs Driving World Championship. Dr. Revenaugh has been honored to serve as a Team Veterinarian or Assistant Team Veterinarian since that time. Duties have included selecting, treating and advising elite level professionals in the equine industry, maintaining health and maximizing performance.
Dr. Revenaugh moved to the Pacific Northwest in 2002 where he intended to create a small and unique practice to work exclusively with equine performance issues and lameness. The clinic quickly grew into one of the premier equine sports medicine practices in the western United States reflecting Dr. Revenaugh’s investment in advanced technologies, imaging modalities, and leading-edge therapies. Dr. Revenaugh has also served as the Director of the High Performance Sports Group since 2013 in an effort to help further not only the sport, but the profession as well. His greatest professional joy remains being part of a winning team; helping horses and owners make good decisions to advance equine health and maximize performance. Dr. Revenaugh lives on a farm in Mulino, Oregon with his wife and two children.

After several continuous days of rain, the skies cleared over Leesburg, Virginia today as the Morven Park Fall International CCI4*-L got under way with the first horse inspection.

The ground jury consisted of Wayne Quarles (USA), Robert Stevenson (USA), and Sue Baxter (GBR).
While a total of 95 4- and 5-year-old horses will be vying for top-finishes in The Dutta Corp. USEA Young Event Horse (YEH) East Coast Championships next weekend, a select group of YEH graduates are entered in the CCI5*-L division at the second annual MARS Maryland 5 Star at Fair Hill Presented by Brown Advisory. The USEA YEH program has run successfully for over 15 years, and many graduates of the program have gone onto compete at the pinnacle of the sport, the FEI 5-Star level of eventing, including the four horses entered in the 2022 Maryland 5 Star.
Founded in 2019, the MARS Bromont Rising U25 Program was initially created to assist up-and-coming riders under the age of 25 in North America who had not yet competed in a destination event, such as the program’s namesake the MARS Bromont CCI in Lac Brume, Quebec, Canada, or been recognized by the USEF programs intended for emerging athletes.. Spearheaded by the late Steve Blauner and Sue Ockendon, the program sought to give back to the sport by helping the next generation of riders get more experience under their belt with the help of the financial assistance provided by the program, and the two days of included instruction from leading coaches around the world.
