Welcome to the Stables Equine Practice 

From Monday 10th November 2014  we have moved   to our brand new purpose-built clinic at: Conkerfield, Pennybatch Lane, Wookey, Nr Wells, Somerset BA5 1NH where our 5 specialist equine vets will be able to give your animals the very best care and attention that they deserve.

The Stables Equine Practice was established in 1997 when Nicko Robertson returned to his Somerset roots from equine practice in Hertfordshire. The founding principles of offering a high quality and personal first opinion 100% Equine Practice continues 16 years on, with additional vets and constant updating of equipment and services. These services include a range of up-to-date diagnostic procedures, digital radiography, ultrasound imaging, endoscopy and electrocardiography.

The Stables Equine Practice is experienced in dealing with horses and ponies involved in all competitive disciplines, breeding, as well as pleasure horses and those kept as companions. Unlike many practices, we don't hide our vets from owners, they are accessible directly on mobile phones, as we believe that part of the personal service includes being able to discuss problems directly with vets before they become dramas!

The Stables Equine Practice maintains strong relationships with the best referral centres for surgery and advanced diagnostic imaging, allowing us to chose the referral centre that is most appropriate for any given scenario. This ethos of co-operation extends to other equine professionals and para-professionals; we work closely with all the local farriers and equine dental technicians as well as equine physiotherapists, whose areas of expertise complement ours.


Our new clinic building is now complete and we moved in on Monday 10th November. It is located on the Wells to Wedmore road.


FROM WELLS: At the top of The Portway in Wells, take the left hand fork signposted to Wedmore/Burnham-on-Sea (B3139), continue along this road for just over half a mile and you will find us on the left hand side (first entrance after the national speed limit sign). Turn left at the highway warning signs for "left bend" and "beware horses" signs.

FROM WEDMORE: On the B3139, we are the next right turning shortly after the Burcott Inn (on your left) after the sharp right hand bend.

Drive through the old stone pillars (2 milk churns to the right of entrance!)  and you will find our electronic gates on your first left. (Pull up to the gates and they will slowly open for you automatically - on leaving, give enough room for the gates to swing open automatically TOWARDS YOUR VEHICLE ).

We hope to be announcing our public grand opening celebration in the spring where our valued clients will be invited to join us to celebrate the dawning of a new era for The Stables Equine Practice.
