Unfortunately horses are accident-prone creatures and you may need our attendance in an emergency.

Please note, a vet should be contacted in every case, and we are always happy to assess a case over the phone where possible so if you are not sure if you need a vet do call us for advice.

We provide our own out of hour services, so in an emergency you can ring us night or day! We can come to your yard with the necessary equipment.
