Veterinary Thermal Imaging (VTI) is thrilled to announce its support of Equi Vivre.
Equi Vivre specialises in the retraining and rehoming of ex-racehorses, with horses leaving Equi-Vivre going on to enjoy careers in eventing, dressage and showjumping, as well as hacking and other leisure pursuits.
In addition, the company provides a sanctuary for horses that have fully retired from all ridden activity, and can also offers livery packages where thoroughbreds are retrained.
“We have found VTI to be an incredibly useful tool as it is able to pick up on potential issues with our horses before they become problematic,” says Elizabeth Matthews from Equi Vivre.
“This is invaluable when retraining a racehorse as with this technology, we can be made aware of any potential problems the horse is carrying when it arrives with us fresh from training. With this information, we can treat accordingly and make sure the horse is fully recovered from any little niggles before we commence its retraining.
“The equipment is completely unobtrusive to the horse and can in many cases save the need for expensive veterinary work ups when the source of the problem can be located in this way. We would highly recommend to anyone to give it a try!”
VTI thermographer Stephanie Godfrey works with Equi Vivre at its Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire yards and commented: “Equi Vivre do a fantastic job rehoming and educating thoroughbreds and have proven that a racehorse’s life doesn’t stop at the race track. The team at Equi Vivre are passionate and dedicated to the service they provide to the horses and their potential owners, this is seen in each horse’s individual care and retraining programmes. I’m really pleased to be working with such a great team, and using thermal imaging to help them and their horses.”
