Matt qualified from the Royal Veterinary College, London, in 1990. After working in a mixed, primarily equine clinic in the UK he moved with his family to New Zealand in 2008, joining Energy Vets in 2011. As part of the large animal team here he is mainly involved with the equine side of the clinic, covering all aspects of equine work. Outside work, Matt can generally be found providing veterinary and farriery assistance to his daughter’s 2 horses, or acting as taxi driver and manager for his son’s cycling and adventure racing activities. Very occasionally, when all his jobs are done, he is allowed to ride a horse and bike himself. Neither of which, according to his children, he does very well.
