What our customers have to say about us:

I have found the Shotter and Byers vets, who have been looking after my horse for a long time now, to be extremely approachable, friendly and sympathetic whose knowledge and expertise I’m sure every other livery who knows them would agree, is very reassuring. Particularly to those of us who might be described as a little overprotective/OTT?
The staff who man the phones and do all the other things which keep everything running are always courteous and helpful, even to those who have a red “totally mad” sticker on their file and I have no doubt that includes yours truly.
Anne Hagger, Odysey Horse.

We have used Shotter & Byers as our Veterinary Practice for over 12 years now. They have always offered us an excellent veterinary service to our dressage horses and our clients based with us. Their advice and response time is second to none and I would not hesitate recommending them to anyone who owns a horse.
Andrew Gould, International Dressage Rider & Trainer.

Shotter & Byers have provided the veterinary care for our horses in training, breeding operation and young stock for over ten years. They have always provided my horses with excellent care and very much understand the demands of running a busy yard. We have a close working relationship with the vets and they are always on the end of the phone when we need them. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.

Phillip York. Trainer, Most successful Point-to-Point Jockey still riding (over 300 wins to date).

I have used the services of Shotter & Byers since I first started training racehorses in 2001. They offer a superb service, including out of hours and I couldn’t recommend them highly enough.
Jim Boyle MRCVS, Epsom Flat Trainer

We have all been in those high pressure crisis situations where a horse has injured itself or is ill. It is reassuring knowing I can call on the very experienced team at Shotter & Byers to take care of my precious horses. I have found them to always go above and beyond their call of duty. All the vets are very relatable and approachable, providing advice at a level that we as clients can understand.
Chris Burton, Australian Olympic Team Member and International Event Rider.
