A Cheshire equine hospital is marking its 25th anniversary with an open day.

Ashbrook Equine Hospital
Ashbrook is Cheshire’s only RCVS-approved tier three equine hospital.

Ashbrook Equine Hospital in Knutsford – part of the independently-owned Willows Veterinary Group – will host a range of horse-inspired activities on 2 July from midday to 5pm.

The event will include pony hopper races, a rodeo horse, children’s face painting and a chance to see the hospital’s veterinary team, including head vets Roger Dixon and Kerry Comb, in the stocks.

A range of equine talks and horse bandaging displays will also take place, along with a tour of the purpose-built facility, which is Cheshire’s only RCVS-approved tier three equine hospital.
