James qualified from the Royal Veterinary College, where he then became part of the Equine Referral Hospital team as one of the Junior Clinical Training Scholars. Whilst there he gained valuable experience in medicine, surgery, anaesthesia and radiology, working alongside specialists in each area. He worked at a large equine practice in Buckinghamshire with a large and varied caseload. He then worked at a 4 vet practice on the Hertfordshire/Essex border, after which he worked at practice on the Surrey/Sussex border working with some of the top polo teams, event and competition horses in the world. It was during his time here that James developed his interest in complimentary medicine and nutrition and went on to develop extensive understanding of the needs and requirements of all varieties of horses.
James is an FEI Permitted Treating Veterinarian. He presented his final year research project at the International Congress on Equine Locomotion in Stromsholm, Sweden and has also been published in the Equine Veterinary Journal and The Polo Times. Outside of work James is a keen rugby player.
