The team caring for Jo's horses

Tilly - our beloved dog and a vital member of the team

My horses receive the very best care, both from my experienced team of staff and from the close attention of the vets, farriers, equine physio, chiropractor and equine dentist that are very much part of the team. The staff never take short cuts, every detail of each horses well being is thorough and if extra time is needed it is taken.

I have chosen the very best professionals from each area to care for my horses. Each brings a wealth of knowledge and experience and different expertise. My professional integrity, experience and knowledge forms an understanding between me and the practitioner's I choose.

The team: Peter Milligan (vet), James Clee (dentist), Jame Hiatt (farrier), Annabelle Galt (physio), Leigh Miller (chiro), Chris Palmer (groom), Holly Bates (rider and groom), Gemma Hall (groom), Lauren Horgan (showgroom)
