Dr. Ray Randall graduated from Colorado State University in 1971, where he earned a degree in veterinary medicine, and later that same year completed an equine surgery internship at the University of Minnesota. He then returned home to his Montana roots and start his own veterinary practice. He has a thriving, mixed-animal veterinary practice with a specific focus on cattle, herd work, performance horses and broodmares, but with a buffalo or mountain lion thrown in for good measure. He was also the Assistant Professor in Equestrian Studies at Rocky Mountain College, where he taught preventative medicine and reproduction courses, for over 20 years.
Dr. Randall has officiated at FEI endurance events across the United States as well as Canada, Japan, Portugal, the United Arab Emirates, Germany, France, Qatar, Bahrain, Jordan, and Egypt. He has served as an FEI representative at the 2010 and 2014 FEI World Equestrian Games, the USEF National Reining Championships, the President’s Cup in Portugal, the FEI European Championship, the Tevis Cup North American Championships, the Pan-Am World Games, as well as other endurance and performance-horse events too numerous to mention.
Doc Randall is mostly retired now, and still lives in Bridger, Montana, with his wife, Marilyn. He can often be found out with his own cattle, the ornamental Longhorns out in the pasture, or the pasture nags behind the house. He has a smashing collection of antique tractors, most of which only partially work. When he isn’t at out irrigating or moving the pivot sprinkler, he can often be found in his Kubota, singing duets with his Aussie Shepherd copilot, Ruby.
