We train and show reining horses at the highest level here in New Zealand and Australia with many state and national titles. This equine sport requires our horses to be at their very best mentally and physically, “the reining horse is a true super equine athlete.” We choose to use Warkworth Vets as our preferred and only vet and consultant in NZ to help keep our horses in tip top condition.Jason and Kurt Melling, Warkworth
As the owners of a boutique horse stud standing the ESNZ Showjumping Stallion of the Year for 2015/2016, Luego GNZ, we take great pride in the care and attention we give our horses. This of course would not be possible without the expertise of the amazing team at Warkworth Vets. In our first year of breeding we had a 100% success with Warkworth Vets in attendance every step of the way. On further occasions where we have required vet care for ailments or paddock accidents Warkworth Vets have supported us from the care they need to full recovery mode. We feel very blessed to have such a wonderful team at our doorstep.Tania and Jade Cookson, Warkworth
