Synergy for Success
Growing up with horses is a common thread that unites our team of dedicated equine veterinarians. Born of a deep love and passion for the equine disciplines, we proudly treat horses throughout metropolitan Sydney, the Hawkesbury, the Southern Highlands and Illawarra Regions.
Since 2015 we have cultivated an engrained synergy between our team and clients. We listen to and focus on their needs, as well as their horse, developing a growing team of expertise to unlock your athlete’s potential and success in thoroughbred racing, dressage, showjumping and eventing while caring for their comfort and wellbeing.
Vision & Mission
Equine Performance is our Passion
It takes years, even decades, to develop the kind of resilience, discipline and expertise required to unlock every horse’s potential to achieve success. The right support and nurturing will allow every horse to perform to their potential.
We’re driven and passionate about equine athletes and their trainers. As dedicated equine veterinarians, we exist to direct our energy towards the things that matter: partnering with you to reveal your horse’s potential and develop a relationship that will last the journey, to support each horse to become the best that they can be.
Respect the Equine Athlete
Sydney Equine delivers an holistic approach to equine veterinary services delivered by a dedicated team fully equipped to perform ambulatory diagnostics, minor surgery and wellbeing care.
We partner with you to understand your goals and challenges so we can best advise your choice on the right horse and work with you to achieve optimum health and performance while always respecting the horse.
Diagnostics & Treatments
Here For You & with You
Examinations are performed at the horse’s stable so we can best assess the horse in its own environment. From pre-purchase examinations right through to radiology, ultrasound, endoscopy, minor surgeries and prescribing we are on your journey to success.
What Our Clients
Say About Us
David Garth is an extraordinary vet. He and his team are solutions based with incredible skill at diagnosing lameness and pinpointing illness and injury. David has the rare ability to rationalise his findings and put forward solutions to keep horses sound and performing to the best of their ability with maximum longevity. I can’t recommend Sydney Equine highly enough.
Performance Horse Client
The Team at Sydney Equine Practice are second to none! All the vets are highly knowledgeable in Equine welfare and are very efficient in responding to our needs (even on emergency weekend call outs). We have 42 horses in work at a given time and each of the Vets even know the individual personalities of the horses which helps them know if something is not quite right and assist in providing a high quality level of care to our equine athletes.
Thoroughbred Conditioners, Rosehill Racecourse
Ballodair Park Equestrian Centre has been working with the great vets at Sydney Equine Practice for over two years now, and we could not be more pleased and impressed by their ongoing support and treatment of our horses. Whether it’s regular health checks, emergency call outs or ongoing care and maintenance of our top performance horses, David Garth, Elisabeth Charles and their team are only ever a phone call away.
Owner/operator Ballodair Park Equestrian Centre
What I most appreciate about them is their straightforward approach to the situation at hand, because no matter what the issue they are never anything but upfront and honest. They are both incredibly supportive but equally realistic about outcomes, while always being sensitive to the sometimes emotional component of dealing with sick or injured horses. Sydney Equine Practice is an integral part of our operation and I can’t recommend them highly enough.
Owner/operator Ballodair Park Equestrian Centre
JPR Equestrian have been proud to partner with Sydney Equine for the past few years. The team have been pivotal in ensuring our competition horses are feeling fit and able to perform at the highest level as well as ensuring our young horses are on the right track for long-term soundness. We have been impressed by the knowledge and capabilities of the entire team at Sydney Equine and look forward to continuing a long relationship with them in the future.
Olympian James Paterson-Robinson and Grand Prix rider Sarah Duggan
I first came across Sydney Equine when seeking a second opinion 6 years ago. I was so impressed by the knowledge and care they provided I have been with them ever since! Over the years I have recommended Sydney Equine to many friends and clients, all of which have been incredibly impressed with their services. My horses have benefited hugely through having wonderful vets to rely upon both in times of emergency and routine care. Thank you!
