Ben is the Equine Director, responsible for overseeing the growth and development of the equine division. He is an ECVS and RCVS recognised specialist in Equine Surgery, having spent most of his career working with the world’s top thoroughbreds in Newmarket and in Melbourne, Australia. Ben joined CVS from his position as consultant surgeon at Europe’s largest equine hospital, in Newmarket, and continues to perform surgery across several of the equine practices within the division. He is a Diplomate of the European College of Veterinary Surgeons (ECVS), and has published and presented nationally and internationally on a wide range of topics, including fracture repair and spinal surgery. Ben is excited to be part of CVS, and by the prospect of building a premier equine referral institution in the North. Outside of work Ben enjoys playing golf, and walking with his two Border Terrier in the beautiful Yorkshire countryside with his wife Katherine.
