Vets

Veterinary Surgeon

Clare qualified from Bristol in 2006 and started work in a mixed practice in Hampshire.  She moved to Devon in 2009 and has been at St Boniface since 2014.

Clare leads the equine team at St Boniface and enjoys looking after all horses from small ponies to competition horses.  She has a particular interest in sports horse performance management and is always happy to discuss ways to improve your competitive performance.
 
Outside of work, Clare is usually found riding her horses Bart and Dori, and you may bump into them at local dressage competitions.

Hattie graduated from Nottingham Vet School in July 2018 and joined the team soon after. Hattie is originally from Newmarket in Suffolk, but having worked with racehorses she decided that the rolling hills of Devon were much more appealing.

Her favourite part about being a vet is problem solving, and working with clients to achieve the best outcome for each individual case. Hattie loves travelling and her adventures have taken her to The Gambia, where she completed some research into working horses and donkeys, and to Australia where she learned to play polocrosse and went cattle mustering on horseback.

Outside of work Hattie enjoys running, and although she does not own a horse currently, she hopes to get back in the saddle soon!

Laura joined the St Boniface team in December 2018. She graduated from Bristol University in 2007 and has worked in mixed practices in the South West previously. You may recognise Laura as she has done some locum work for us following the arrival of her first daughter.

She lives in East Cornwall with her husband and two young daughters. Together, they partner a dairy, beef arable & sheep business, on a long-term farm tenancy which they took on in 2017.

At home, Laura has 2 New Forest Ponies, one that she has just backed having bought her as a yearling and the other is a couple of years older. So far they are getting out and about doing some arena CX and SJ training and are looking forward to some ODE's this season!
