Here is your opportunity to learn more about your horse and develop your equine knowledge.

  • Learn about safe equine travel and welfare considerations all owners should be mindful of when transporting horses both on a ferry and the road.
  • We discuss the importance of good biosecurity both at home and away, giving you some simple methods to put into practice that will help to protect your own horse and others.
  • Learn more about the importance of routine hoof care and how you can keep your horse’s feet in great shape.
  • Update your skills with our Equine First Aid course. Learn to confidently treat minor injuries & ailments and know when to call the vet.
  • Have your horse weighed and fat scored by the BHS Horse Care & Welfare Team and discuss weight management options.
  • ‘Better a week too early than a day too late’ - join us as we discuss how to assess your horse’s quality of life and avoid delayed euthanasia.

The British Horse Society, The Glasgow Equine Hospital and Practice, University of Glasgow and supported by the Old Mill Veterinary Centre Stornoway will be working together to offer non-urgent consultations for any equines requiring specialist equine veterinary advice and a health and welfare check.

An outreach clinic is when we work in partnership in remote communities to produce access to veterinary advice and preventative healthcare for horse owners.

Cost: £20

Please bring your own packed lunch.

A 30 minute appointment will include your horse being seen by a vet and also body condition scored by our BHS Welfare Team.

Please note: Appointments will not be held in private.  There will be other attendees, staff, etc in the venue at the time of your appointment.
