Martin Peaty MRCVS and The Barn Equine Surgery

Having a great relationship with The Barn and particularly our team vet Martin has been incredibly important to Daisy and her horses. The facilities at The Barn are fantastic, meaning that most conditions and procedures can be treated on site. Martin is a highly knowledgeable, diligent and passionate vet who has always gone over and above what was expected and has worked tirelessly to do the best for Daisy’s horses and keep them happy and healthy.
