Anne Hutton, DVM
Dr. Anne Hutton is a recent graduate from Washington State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine. She did her undergraduate and first year of veterinary school at Montana State University. She is originally from Wisdom, Montana where the population is 98 people and 20,000 head of cattle and horses. This afforded her with a childhood tied to the land and the ranching lifestyle. Through 4-H and ranch work, she grew to love the sport of rodeo. This love developed even more in high school and college competition in breakaway and team roping and led to a passion for performance horses. Her main interests include lameness, surgery, and rehabilitation. She plans to apply for an equine surgical residency. Outside of work she enjoys spending time with her family and her horses, going on pack trips and to rodeos, traveling, skiing, and fly fishing. She looks forward to seeing you and your horses!

She spent her childhood horseback for daily ranch work and also competed in roping and barrel racing at local rodeos. After high school, Becky worked as a feedlot pen rider and as a jillaroo on a cattle station in the Australian outback. During vet school, she continued attending barrel racing jackpots and also fell in love with playing polo. Outside of horses, Becky likes weight lifting, cooking, and cattle. She is extremely excited for her internship year at Pioneer. Her professional interests include lameness, surgery, sports medicine, and diagnostic imaging.
