Dr. Tom Riddle Releases Book; Profits to Benefit Two Foundations

Dr. Tom Riddle, a co-founder of Rood and Riddle Equine Hospital, has released a book about his life, his career and his experiences in equine reproduction.


A new book that will be on every veterinarian’s and horse breeder’s Christmas list was just released. The Riddle Half (of Rood and Riddle) was written by Tom Riddle, DVM, one of the co-founders of Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital.

The book includes stories from his childhood and his career, along with Riddle’s tips in a “how-to” guide to mare reproduction created over decades of hands-on practice. The mix of science and storytelling in this book allows Riddle to recount his role in establishing one of the largest equine veterinary practices in the world while developing a decades-long combination of skills that are the art and science of mare reproduction. 

With a combination of humility and pride, Riddle tells how he and Dr. Bill Rood joined together and built a veterinary practice, which now has locations in Lexington, Kentucky, Saratoga Springs, New York, and Wellington, Florida. Rood & Riddle has achieved a national and international reputation for excellence in equine veterinary medicine.

“In the book The Riddle Half, Dr. Tom Riddle shares all the hard-earned wisdom gained over forty-plus years of an amazing career in veterinary medicine. Moreover, he conveys the pattern of his life … The Golden Rule. A “must- read” for veterinarians and broodmare managers everywhere!”—John Williams, Former Manager at Spendthrift Farm

All profits from the sale of The Riddle Half (of Rood and Riddle) go to The Foundation for the Horse, the American Association of Equine Practitioners’ (AAEP’s) charitable arm that supports horses and horse people throughout the world, and the Theriogenology Foundation, the global non-profit of the organization of veterinarians dedicated to animal reproduction.

The book may be purchased by contacting Rood & Riddle Veterinary Pharmacy at 859-246-0112 or online at RRVP.com.
