Charlie Gruchy GPCert EqP and John Hamilton BCSc MRCVS. Together they have amassed almost sixty years of experience in treating horses, yet remain as enthusiastic about their subject as ever. Supported by Roisin Wood BVetMed MRCVS and Simon Bewsey-Dyke VetMB MRCVS you will usually find at least one of them will be attending in an official capacity at the regular horse racing events, where they will always welcome an informal chat on equine matters.
