VAT-FREE Consultancy Referrals
Jane Nixon provides a professional equine veterinary consultancy referral service for a range of young and competition horse selection, performance and management issues—with special regard to conformation.
Sport Horse Consultancy
Jane Nixon offers consultancy-based advice, on a referral basis, on the performance and management of the competition horse, from day 1 of the foal’s life to the pinnacle of its competitive career and later management. Consultancy services include sub-optimal performance assessment, diagnosis and advice on the management of under-performing sports horses & ponies in all equestrian disciplines, i.e. dressage, eventing, show-jumping and endurance.
Competition horse equine veterinary referrals
While often called in by the horse owner, Jane will always consult and liaise with the referring home vet to diagnose poor performance in sports horses & ponies in all disciplines. Jane never sees a case without first seeking permission from the owner’s vet. Working in a recognised, ethical & professional manner with the referring vet, Jane Nixon will examine the problem, consult with the hom’ vet on any treatment required, and continue liaising and following up with both horse owner and vet. Jane also continues to act as equine veterinary consultant to Buckingham Equine Vets—which practice was originally founded in 2005 by Jane and her late husband Stewart Hastie, as Nixon Equine Vets.
