All of our vets are passionate about horses. They won't be able to give you the winner of the 3.30 at Haydock Park nor can they ride like Charlotte Dujardin (although Simon thinks he does!) but they are experts on the best way to keep your horses healthy.
Each of the vets have specific interests within the equine world, from orthopaedics to dentistry, medicine to breeding and surgery to poor performance issues. Covering Greater Manchester, Lancashire, Cheshire and parts of Derbyshire and West Yorkshire our vets are dedicated with a passion for their job. They are caring, considerate and compassionate about our patients and understanding about their owners' needs and requirements.
Simon Constable BVSc CertAVP(Equine Orthopaedic Surgery) MRCVS has been riding since a teenager and has competed locally at riding-club level. In any precious spare time, Simon even finds time to spend with his horses and ponies. His main horse is a chestnut purebred Arab gelding called Miles (MG Vaquero) ridden by his wife, Emily.
Simon gained his Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons Equine Orthopaedic Surgery Certificate in Advanced Veterinary Practice (Cert AVP ESO) in January 2012.
Simon has close links with the Myerscough School of Farriery at Preston where he frequently lectures on orthopaedics (including navicular, laminitis and other orthopaedic conditions). At these events he receives valuable input from the lecturers there, Mark Caldwell FWCF, Paul Conroy FdSc AWCF and Jon Mather FdSc AWCF. It is this close contact with these and other farriers in the area that helps to improve the treatment and outcomes for horses.
Many of you will be aware that Simon is quite interested in running and has completed the London Marathon on 3 occasions. As well as this, Simon is a keen football, rugby and cricket fan.
For relaxation, Simon enjoys spending time at home with his black Labradors.
Fiona Coulter BVM&S MRCVS graduated from Edinburgh University and before joining Simon Constable’s practice was an intern at the Sussex Equine Hospital where she had further training in a wide range of specialist equine veterinary procedures.
She has been riding from a young age enjoying everything from show jumping to drag hunting. Whilst in Edinburgh she loved getting involved with the ‘Common Riding’ – a tradition of riding the boundaries of Scottish border towns.
In her spare time Fiona loves baking – from a family favourite chocolate fudge cake to her latest new creations of macaroons. Another passion is Latin and Ballroom dancing with a personal highlight being getting to dance at the Blackpool Tower Ballroom on a trip with her university dance team.”
Georgia graduated from the University of Surrey in 2022 and moved up from the South West in early 2023 to join the team at Simon Constable’s. She has ridden since she was young, and throughout university knew she wanted to stick to working with horses (and donkeys!). Whilst keen to develop in all aspects of equine practice, she has a particular interest in internal medicine.In her free time she enjoys exploring the countryside, seeing friends and family, and fishkeeping!
