Amy Holtby

Originally from Yorkshire, Amy Holtby joined Equinome Ltd in July 2013 after graduating from the Royal Agricultural University (Cirencester) with first-class honours in Equine Science. During her degree, she worked with high-performance polo ponies which inspired her undergraduate research project investigating myostatin mutations in polo ponies, which she performed in collaboration with Equinome. Having worked as part of laboratory operations team for three years she was always eager to pursue her passion for research exploring the biological dynamics underpinning the equine athlete and started a PhD project based at University College Dublin in September 2016.  In her spare time she enjoys riding in Wicklow and is also a member of the Irish Thoroughbred Breeders Association Next Generation club.
