We would like to share the comments we received from some of our lovely clients recently.









Conor and Amanda,


'Thank you (my mare) has been wonderful and lived an incredibly full life so she deserves a rest now',  

'Conor was wonderful and fought to help her to the end and I am incredibly grateful to him, as always.  I hope he knows he is not allowed to retire'.  CJ October 2023.


'Conor and Amanda,


I just want to thank you for your time today.  You always make me feel welcome and at ease.  For someone who didn't discover horses until I was older than most, you never make me feel stupid if I ask what is probably classed as a stupid question and you always explain everything so that I fully understand it, so thank you both so very much'.  LM September 2023.


'A small token of how grateful we are for all your support over the 23 years J........ was with us.  He was the closest thing we have to 'the family silver' and our most precious friend.  I trusted Conor's expertise whenever I had concerns about J............ It was such a pleasure to speak to any member of the team.  Thank you so much for everything.  AM Dec 2022.



'Just a little note to say a hugh thank you for all you did for F... recently.  Thankfully we haven't had to use your service very often until lately, but when we did, the care we received was prompt, professional and above all caring.  I cannot thank you enough for the compassionate way you dealt with the end of F.....'s life, I will always be grateful'.  JB July 2022.



... 'a quick thank you for the amazing care you have given ... over the last 20 odd years.  Always given promptly, compassionately and with kindness.  I know that we would have lost him over 13 years ago without your conscientious skill.  You made him comfortable and pain free throughout his very many trials, thank you so very much'.  (S&G 2022).



Hi Conor, I just wanted to thank you and your team for the last two appointments I have had with you.  Everything was explained so thoroughly and both times I left the clinic feeling that I really understood how to follow the maintenance programme for (gastric) ulcers.  Best wishes LW (March 2021).


Dear Conor, 'just wanted to say a big thank you for caring for my horses over the last twenty years plus!!  You have been so professional and caring in every way.  I just had to let you know that you got me through it all'.  'Thank you'  (JF Feb 2021).


FIVE STARS  'I found the whole team to be very helpful and professional.  Conor explained all the options, alowing me to decide what was best for my beloved horse. Once a decision was made everyone was helpful, if ever I had any queries.  My horse also had to stay overnight and received top class care!  He is now completely better and I would recommend them to anyone'.





'Dear Conor, its been a long time since I knew you and you treated my big Irish hunter for a nasty knee injury when he fell on the road.  I sadly had to say goodbye to him a few weeks ago as time finally caught up with him and he was not his usual happy self anymore.  I often think about the first year after we bought him and the care you and your team gave him.  I just wanted to say a big thank you again and I'm sure that without the great care you gave, he would have had a much shorter happy life than he did.  Best wishes and I hope that you are all safe.  JD (September 2020). 



Absolutely sing these guys praises from the rooftops!  Can't recommend them enough!   Personal care given and always have time for horses and owner!  Been with horses 29yrs and this practice is the best I've come across!  Well done Acorns team and again what a great service.... (LH February 2020)


'FIVE STARS' Absolutely fantastic team! to not only get to the bottom of what was wrong with my  'H' and fix him, but for the reassurance and support they gave me throughout when I couldnt help but panic and loose hope.  I cannot recommend you enough.  Thank you x' (AAM May 2020).



I have been with Conor and the team for nearly ten years now and they are superb.  They have taken the time to know my individual horses and their needs and they are always on hand to offer friendly advice and helpful guidence when I ask.  The whole team are just lovely, warm compassionate and knowledgeable, you just know you are in good hands.  In particular my boy with foot troubles, the investigation, diagnosis and ongoing care has been excellent.  With thanks from team A....

PK January 2020.
