Simon Pollard BSc(VetSc)Hons BVM&S CertES(Orth) MRCVS
Veterinary Surgeon
Simon graduated from Edinburgh University in 1989 and, after a short period in mixed practice, undertook a year residency in equine medicine at Kansas State University. Upon his return to the UK, he worked in equine practice in the Midlands before a surgical residency at the Royal Veterinary College during which he attained the RCVS Certificate in Equine Surgery (Orthopaedics). Simon was then self employed for ten years concentrating on equine lameness, back and performance issues and providing general veterinary services to a practice in Derbyshire.

Simon then took his advanced skills to practices in the North East and ultimately Cheshire where he has been based since 2000. On those occasions when Simon has spare time, he can be found on his mountain bike or motorbike, walking Max the Welsh Springer Spaniel, attending a wide variety of concerts and festivals and supporting his daughter’s varied interests.
Dr Elizabeth Brown BSc, BVSc, MRCVS
Liz graduated in 2009 from the University of Liverpool after first doing a degree in zoology at the University of Reading. She then worked in Kent for two years before moving back home to Cheshire to work at an ambulatory equine practice. Liz has special interests in dentistry, internal medicine (especially ophthalmology) and stud medicine and well as donkey medicine. She is a DEFRA official veterinarian and can certify horses for export as well as being on the FEI treating vet register. When not working Liz can be found at home or at shows with her horses and donkeys which she both rides and drives. She breeds both donkeys and Cleveland Bays and has an ex-racehorse called Wash.
Dr Lucy Penrose BVMedSci BVM BVS MRCVS
Veterinary Surgeon
Lucy graduated from Nottingham University in 2011. She went straight into equine first opinion practice and has continued working in this field. She enjoys all aspects of being an equine vet but is passionate about equine dentistry, internal medicine, nutrition and farriery. If these four cornerstones aren’t right then she believes it is hard to get a horse to perform to the best of its ability.

In her spare time Lucy judges for the British Show Horse Association and competes her own horses both astride and aside. She also goes out with her daughter Lily and pony Eddie. At home Lucy is supported by her very tolerant husband and the affections of the family dog Rex.
