Looking for a vet with an exceptional pedigree in performance horse management?

Perhaps you need an expert pair of eyes for pre-purchase exams and reading the results of radiographs?

And praying they might also come with a positive attitude and a smile…?

Someone who understands the bigger picture, genuinely listens and is invested in the end results?

Hoping they will become part of the team and collaborate with your coach, farrier and physio?

“By focusing on the big picture, we aim to improve what the horse can do rather than simply focusing on what it can’t do. Progressive, holistic rehabilitation and a collaborative approach are at the core of everything I do.”

If you are on the hunt for your next equine partnership, Spike is available to carry out expert pre-purchase examinations for horses destined for everything from national teams and performance pathways to team chasing and hedge hopping with the local pack.

Spike also works with ambitious young riders, aiding them as they progress through the levels, target youth team medals and then join the world of professional equestrians. He is the Youth Performance Vet for Team GB Eventing and a key part of this successful operation.
Spike’s consultancy services are available to support riders setting up a professional yard for the first time; advising as they establish training regimes and carrying out routine assessments of the horses.

Spike is deeply invested in both horse and rider progression, enjoying seeing combinations learn and develop together. Learn more about Spike’s background and expertise: (Link to about page)
