All horse owners will know the difficulties vets can have locating our horses, with postcodes unreliable and one field looking much like another on a dark, wet evening!

Previously, the answer may have been you or a friend standing at the side of the road, waiting to flag down your intrepid vet, or simply crossing your fingers that they get lucky – hardly ideal when your horse requires medical assistance.
