Ridings Equine Vets offers a range of visit options to suit your needs. Our routine visits are provided 9.15 – 5pm Monday to Friday and 9 – 11am on Saturday mornings. Our standard visit fee is £59.50 and we try our best to give you an accurate time for your appointment and will contact you if we're running more than 15 minutes late.
We operate a zone visit scheme where we work in your area on the same day each week and offer a reduced visit fee. Please see our map to check on what day your zone visit falls.
Zone visits are on a set day and can be boooked for morning or afternoon, with a specific time being sent to you by text the day before the appointment. Zone visits cannot be booked with a specific veterinary surgeon - this will depend on which vet is in your area. If you require an appointment with a particular vet or to book in advance at a set time then our standard visit fee applies.
Zone visits are suitable for routine appointments such as vaccinations, dentistry, clinical examinations and blood tests. We do not perform gastroscopy, pre purchase examinations or lameness investigations on zone visits as these procedures generally take longer and can limit other clients being able to have a zone visit. Please give at least 24 hours notice for zone visits as they are very popular and booked on a first come first served basis.
If you're on a livery yard with more than 5 registered clients why not join our Yard Visit Scheme where we will visit your yard on a set day and time each month and there is no visit fee. The Yard Visit Scheme means never having to pay for a visit fee for routine work and minor niggles that can be booked and planned in advance. Please contact us if you would like to set up a Yard Visit Scheme for your yard.
Bring your horse to Ridings Equine Vets
You can save the visit fee altogether by bringing your horse to us at the practice. We have full in-patient facilities, stocks and an examination area.
We work bank holidays (except Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Years Day) with zone visits, yard visits and standard visits going ahead as normal.
