Brittany Factor, DVM
Brittany Factor is a horse vet and owner of Factor Veterinary Services, LLC and is the founder of Equine Sport Solutions (ESS). In comparison to several equine vet clinics in the Colorado Springs area, her practice’s specific focus is within equine sports medicine and physiotherapy, utilizing her advanced skill set in lameness, advanced imaging, and treatment/rehabilitation of the equine athlete.
Brittany grew up in the St. Louis, Missouri area and was extensively involved with the hunter/jumper show circuit starting with the pony hunters and training up to the grand prix jumper level. For the last couple years, she has expanded her riding career and has started to show Reined Cow Horses. Her other interests include musical theater, fine art, interior design, fashion, and skiing.
Her undergraduate studies were performed at Stephens College, which included a triple major in biology, chemistry, and equine science/business management. She obtained her doctorate of veterinary medicine from the University of Missouri.
After graduating, she was employed as a horse vet by the University rotating as a house officer through medicine, surgery, and ambulatory medicine practices. There, she participated in the instruction of 3rd and 4th year veterinary students. She then accepted a position as a junior associate at Virginia Equine Imaging. This practice was chosen from several equine vet clinics as the head veterinary coordinator of the 2010 World Equestrian Games during her employment. There she acquired extensive interpretive and clinical skills in the treatment of the performance horse. Both positions provided her the opportunity to work with the Equinosis Lameness Locator, an advanced digital gait analysis system as well as conduct research in lameness and advanced imaging modalities.
Brittany has served as a team and on-site horse vet at many equestrian events that include: Young Rider Championships, Rolex Kentucky 3 Day Event, Fairhill Horse Trials, Virginia Horse Trials, and the Surefire Horse Trials. Brittany has been contracted by The Langer Equestrian Group as the on-site horse vet at The Norris Penrose Event Center in Colorado Springs. She also attends multiple show circuits across the country including premier NRCHA events, Colorado and Arizona cow horse events, the Florida HITS circuit, and many others. Dr. Brittany will continue to travel to these events, or other events at your request.
