We are very excited to announce that our Hawkhurst Clinical Director, Howard Newitt has been invited by the FEI to form part of the veterinary commission at the upcoming World Equestrian Games in Tryon, North Carolina (https://tryon2018.com/).
This is a great honour as only a handful of vets are invited from across the globe to be part of the FEI veterinary team who will officiate at the horse inspections (trot-ups) and have overall responsibility for the welfare of the horses at the games. This appointment results from Howard’s 12 years as an FEI vet which includes previous appointments at local eventing & reining competitions, British Young Horse Eventing championships, Junior European Reining championships & London Paralympic dressage.
Howard will be away for two weeks in September for the games which he is trying to convince everyone is all work and no pleasure!
At Milbourn Equine we understand how important to you it is to give your horse or pony the best care possible.
We have developed our Healthcare Plan to allow you to spread the cost of that care through monthly direct debits that are convenient and also secure.
Our Equine Healthcare Plan is not insurance, instead it provides regular health & dental checks, vaccinations and worm egg counts.
Our plan is available for horses,ponies or donkeys from any age. You will also receive a £1.00 discount per month for every additional equine you register.
Extra benefits include discount on selected products or services that you may require for your horse. You will also receive a FREE branded head collar and lead rope on signing up to our plan. Find out more or call your local branch.

Do you suspect your horse is suffering from gastric ulcers?
Gastric ulcerations are very common, recent studies have shown up to 98% of racehorses and up to 53% of leisure horses are affected.
Symptoms are often vague and can include:
• Poor performance
• Changes in behaviour
• Weight loss/ failure to maintain condition
• Girthing pain
• Poor coat condition
Once diagnosed gastric ulcers can be treated quickly and effectively with medication and horses usually return to their former level of performance. Milbourn Equine offer twice monthly gastroscope clinics at Benenden and Sevington, where you can book in to bring your horse along for a gastroscope at a reduced price.
Scoping in your yard is also available by appointment – please ring for details
