Meet the Team

Meet the Stables Equine Practice team, horsemen and women. We speak your language.

Contact us today

The Stables Equine Practice has always prided itself on having a friendly and approachable team of vets and support staff.

The Team all have knowledge and understanding of horses, including the emotional ups and downs of horse ownership and the highs and lows of the competition world!

By having dedicated equine vets looking after your horses and ponies, we know that you (our clients) are receiving care and advice that you can trust. All our vets can be contacted directly on their mobiles and are happy to discuss problems and give advice, a service which puts your mind at ease.

For appointments and general enquiries, our office hours are 9am -5pm Mon – Fri. Our aim is that you speak to a human not a machine, but this isn’t always possible at busy times and we endeavor to call you back as soon as we can.

Sarah Oatley

BSc (Hons) Equine Science

Senior Receptionist

Sarah worked in racing yards, trained young horses and retrained ex racers for many years before moving back to office work. She is happy to be combining her passions of horses and science!

She loves the unpredictability of her job, never knowing what the next phone call will bring. As Senior Receptionist she oversees the growing team of lovely receptionists and loves that the whole team muck in together, sometimes going out to emergencies with the vets.

After her ex racehorse, Slippers broke his jaw in a freak accident five years ago, they do endurance events when they can, barefoot and bit-less! Sarah and her husband also keep Blue faced Leicester sheep.
