Vet school success

Staff members Lucy and Madeleine and Heather have both been offered university places at Bristol Vet University. Jade has also graduated from The Royal Veterinary college and is continuing to study to become a fully qualified vet. Winston and Ellie are studying at the Royal Veterinary College.
As you all know its very tough to get into Vet School and as well as being brilliant academically you need lots of work experience. Our staff have worked hard at Shetland Pony Club for years and its all paid off. They follow our other staff members Edward (Bristol university), Jenny (Cambridge)  on their big dreams to become a vet.


Lucy and Maddy have been to South Africa to work on a game reserve before coming back to work at Shetland Pony Club for the summer and going up to university. We had a little party to celebrate at the ranch.
Well done girls … you are on your way.
