BHS Healthcare and Education Clinic – Ashford, Kent
Numerous BHS Clinics are held throughout the year across the UK providing horse owners the opportunity to seek information, advice, and support on a huge range of issues and allow experts to engage with and build lasting relationships with people in the local communities. Bransby Horses have long supported these events, sending representatives to assist alongside several other equine charities.
By Royal Appointment
On 30 September, HRH The Princess Royal visited a clinic hosted in Kent and met External Welfare Manager, Rachel Jenkinson. HRH The Princess Royal saw first-hand how several organisations come together to provide tailored support to horse owners, with treatments ranging from castration to dentistry.
Rachel said, “It was a pleasure to meet The Princess Royal who asked after the charity. The clinics have such a positive impact on horse welfare and there is always such a good atmosphere with a great community feel on the day.
“Our team were able to assist with the castration of two very vocal Shetlands who needed to be put under general anaesthetic and monitored to ensure a full recovery, which took a good three hours for the whole procedure.
“The team did a fantastic job supporting throughout the day and it was great to see the two Shetlands pull through their operations and leave the clinic following a good recovery.”
Bransby Horses are committed to supporting all eight clinics in 2022, continuing to address welfare needs across the UK and support our fellow equine charities to break the cycle of neglect, reduce indiscriminate breeding, improve welfare and build relationships in hard-to-reach communities.
