About Carolyn Perkins:

Carolyn qualified from the Royal Veterinary College (London) in 2003 and started her veterinary career in mixed practice in Hertfordshire before moving to an equine veterinary hospital in Berkshire.  It was here that her interest in equine dentistry began to develop while handling a large caseload including polo yards, dressage horses, eventers and show jumpers, all expecting the very highest level of dental care. In 2007 Carolyn moved back to Northern Ireland with her husband and continued to work as a vet.   

During this time a demand for more specialist dentistry for horses became apparent and Carolyn decided to take her interest a step further by successfully taking the theory and practical examinations to become a qualified Equine Dental Technician (EDT).  This a highly respected qualification within the industry and is recognised and recommended by the British Equine Veterinary Association (BEVA).  A full list of qualified EDT’s is available at

About Rosie Alcorn:

Originally from Northern Ireland, Rosie graduated from Liverpool in July 2018. Before graduating Rosie worked for 2 years as a professional groom. She enjoys spending her free time eventing with her 2 horses Bella and John. Rosie is interested in all aspects of equine practice, especially lameness work and dentistry.

Time: 7.30pm - 9.30pm
