About Us

We are an equine only practice based at Moorhouse Equestrian Centre, just off the Wakefield (A638) Rd on the outskirts of Doncaster, South Yorkshire.

The Equine Veterinary Practice was founded in 1999, by Mr Richard Coppack, who had been in mixed practice in the area for the previous 15 years, whose specialist interest had always lain with horses.

Our patients range from high level competition horses through to the much loved family pony and all receive the same care and attention on which we pride ourselves.

Our vets and support staff are horse riders and owners themselves and clients can rest assured that they will be seeing a dedicated horse vet no matter what the time of day or night.

We offer a full range of routine equine veterinary services such as vaccinations, dentistry, sedations, lameness investigations, breeding work including fresh and frozen AI and pre-purchase examinations. We are fully equipped with portable digital x-rays, ultrasound scanners and endoscopy and clinic based gastroscopy equipment.

We perform routine surgeries including castrations and lump removals both at the centre and at clients own properties if the facilities are adequate. All our equipment may be used at your premises as well as at the clinic (except the gastroscope), as long as a suitable power supply is available. It is sometimes easier to carry out more difficult procedures at the clinic where we have better facilities such as stocks to aid restraint.

Horses often need some sedation for all of these procedures to keep them still enough to get good results, minimise stress to the horse, and prevent damage to the equipment.

If major surgical procedures, such as colic surgery or arthroscopy, or advanced diagnostic imaging such as scintigraphy (bone scanning), CT or MRI are required we are able to send your case to one of the specialist referral equine hospital facilities that we work closely with, such as Rainbow Equine Hospital at Old Malton, Hird & Partners at Halifax or Leahurst – The University of Liverpool’s Large Animal Hospital.

About Our Zone Day Maps

We run a ‘zone’ visit scheme enabling reduced price visits on certain days in certain areas. The zone visit fee is split between the number of horses seen at any one location, even with multiple owners.

If there are 5 or more horses to see at the one location the zone visit fee is waived altogether.
