The initial soundness of the horse is a pre-requisite for long term pleasure from your horse. A good pre-purchase examination (vetting) is therefore essential. More than anything else this procedure enables the veterinary surgeon to use all his accumulated clinical skills and experience.

Throughout his career Svend has performed vetting of horses and ponies from all disciplines both in the UK and particularly abroad, having visited most European countries in the process. He has also established a network of clinics and veterinary contacts in Europe (in particular in Holland and Denmark) where he can rely on good facilities for his examination as well as top quality radiographs.
