Great Britain Para Dressage Podium Potential Squad

This weekend saw Penbode Equine Vet David Rowlands attending the Great Britain Para Dressage Podium Potential Squad training session at Solihull Riding Centre to look over the horses. The British Equestrian Federation World Class Programme is Lottery funded through UK Sport. 

(Pictured: Devon based Helen Mathie (squad physiotherapist), David Rowlands (squad vet) and Andrew Bowyer (squad farrier). Para rider Suzanna Hext (originally from Cornwall) and her horse 'LJT Enggaards Solitaire' (Sid when he's at home!))

David has been the team GBR vet for this squad for the last 11 years and the bravery and commitment of the riders  involved with para dressage, and the great partnerships they form with their horses, never ceases to amaze him. This coupled with the opportunity to work with a great team of some of the top trainers, farriers, physiotherapists, master saddlers, equine biomechanics, strength and conditioning coaches, sports psychologists.... make this a truly inspiring and very rewarding environment to work in. 

Thank you to everyone involved.

Do you think your horse is suffering from gastric ulcers?

Gastroscopy Day - 15 February 2017 - Save £100


Gastric ulceration is very common. Recent studies have shown up to 90% of racehorses, up to 50% of leisure horses and 50% of foals are affected.

Symptoms are often vague. The use of gastroscopy can diagnose gastric ulcers which can then be treated quickly and effectively.

Penbode Equine Vets are holding a gastroscopy day on 15 February at the Holsworthy branch, where you can get £100 off a scoping.
