"What to look for when buying a horse?"
In November 2022 we held a client evening at Shuttleworth Equine centre themed around “What to look for when buying a horse”.
The evening not only featured presentations from our vets but also live demos from equine development specialist Hanna Walton, international dressage rider Megan Ingham, Mark Evans farriery and Pippa Winkworth of Cambridge Veterinary Physiotherapy, helping to bring together a whole host of perspectives of what other industry professionals consider when looking at a horse to purchase.
This was our first in person event back after the pandemic and it was so great to see so many people there. Over 100 of you joined us for the evening to share a mulled wine and a mince pie while enjoying the insightful expertise of all our speakers and together we were able to raise lots of money to donate to the Ukrainian Equestrian Charity Foundation to help care for horse’s that have been displaced by the conflict.
On the mornings of the 30th November and the 1st December 2021 we offered the opportunity for our clients to have their horse's gastroscoped for a reduced price. It was a great opportunity for our fantastic vets Charlotte Fenn BVetMed MRCVS, Charlotte Ingham BVetMed (Hons) MRCVS and Oriol Obradors CertAVP MRCVS to spend sometime discussing the management of gastric ulcers with the clients who brought in their horses. The mornings proved very popular with our owners and although this we only had limited availability for these dates, keep your eyes peeled for potentially more in the future.
Due to the ongoing presence of COIVD-19 we have been unable to run any face to face client events for some time, however we have taken part in some online webinars in collaboration with Dengie Horse feeds.
Our vet Charlotte Ingham BVetMed (Hons), MRCVS put together a short presentation about feeding for gastric ulcers full of tips and tricks to do with the management of horses that may be affected by gastric ulceration. The full video can be found on YouTube and we will put a link below for anyone wishing to learn a bit more about managing these kinds of horses.
Shortly after that our principal vet, Jason Tyrrell BVSc, BAEDT, MRCVS, gave a presentation discussing how feeding can influence the management of dental issues in both young and older horses.The full video can be found on YouTube and we will put a link below for anyone wishing to learn a bit more about managing these kinds of horses.
