The Team

The vets studied at Liverpool University, which was rated the best of the six vet-schools during 4 out of the 5 years leading up to their graduation in 2008. Beth and Verena decided to bring together their skills and passion in 2017, realising they had similar values and aspirations for providing a consistently high quality service.

Verena Jolly


Equine Vet


After graduating, Verena completed an internship in a busy Australian Equine Hospital, working alongside specialist equine surgeons with a caseload focused on elite racehorses. After a couple of years back in the UK in equine practice, Verena returned to Australia to provide veterinary care to the clients of the Australian Dressage and Paralympic Team vet during the 2012 Olympics. Verena has since worked at the University of Cambridge Equine Hospital, and been responsible for teaching Nottingham undergraduate rotation students, in between many years providing ambulatory veterinary care to all types of horses.

In 2014 Verena was awarded the RCVS Certificate in Advanced Equine Practice and in 2015 was among the first vets to become recognised by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons as an Advanced Practitioner in Equine Practice. In both 2016 & 2017 she was nominated by her loyal clients for equine vet of the year! She is also an Official Veterinarian, and an accredited ARVS racecourse vet.

Verena has a further interest in equine behaviour and learning theory.  One of the most rewarding parts of her work is changing a horse that has previously been afraid of and reactive about veterinary procedures to accept, or even be enthusiastic about vets, needles, wormers and other previously frightening stimuli using highly motivating, scientifically-based training concepts.

Outside of work, Verena enjoys training and riding her own horses, playing the harp, and forest walks with  'Billie', her vocal Samoyed dog!

Beth Robinson


Equine Vet


After graduating, Beth returned to her home near the New Forest and has worked here in dedicated equine practice ever since! She brings to the team vibrance and a wealth of experience, including 5 years working alongside Chris Pearce; world leading veterinary expert in Equine Dentistry. In 2015 Beth completed a Master's level Certificate in Advanced Veterinary Practice, and in 2016 was awarded the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons' Certificate in Advanced Equine Practice. Her appreciation from her clients was rewarded in both 2016 and 2017 when she was nominated Equine Vet of the Year! In 2017 Beth received Advanced Practitioner (AP) status, awarded by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons, in recognition of years of study, hard work and dedication to equine practice.


Beth enjoys all aspects of equine practice, but has particular interests in lamintis, PPID (Cushing's), gastrointestinal disease and sarcoids; she was previously involved in a project with Professor Knottenbelt researching the success rates of iridium wires for the treatment of periocular sarcoids. Beth is also an Official Veterinarian, and provides event cover at GB endurance rides and point-to-points, as an accredited ARVS Racecourse Vet.


As well as being a clinically excellent vet in high demand, Beth is passionate about creating a practice that excels in all aspects of client and patient care. To this end she has embarked on a second Master's level qualification and is at the cutting edge of business management in the profession, embracing modern business styles to provide an unrivalled, bespoke client experience, particularly focused on preventive health-care to optimise the welfare of horses, ponies and donkeys in our care.


Life never stops for the Robinson family - Beth's 'spare' time is spent exploring the New Forest with her husband Jamie, two young children Barnaby and Wilbur, and their lively terriers, Scribbles and Toby!      01425 600080      T&C's  Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons
