To make an appointment please contact the office on 01260 280800, between 8:00am and 5.30pm, Monday to Friday. We will check and confirm the following details:
- contact number
- address for your horse, and any specific directions
- preferred vet (if appropriate)
- brief summary of reason for appointment

Please be aware that at times things may occur that are beyond our control, for example emergencies, that may necessitate a change in appointment time/ vet. Our office staff will endeavour to keep you updated at all times, but do please bear with us.
Free Zone Visits
Free Zone Visit
Our free visit zones, where you do not pay a visit fee, include things like vaccinations, blood tests, medication checks, passport sketches, microchips. The way this works, is:
- you book a zone appointment, at the very latest before 12:00pm the day before the zone (the earlier you book the better)
- we call you the day before to confirm a one-hour time slot
- you ensure someone is available during that hour to hold your horse
- you pay for the consultation/ medication provided either before or at the appointment
We also have dental zones in all areas, where the same arrangements apply. A £20 deposit is required to secure an appointment.
Book early as the zones do get full well in advance!

We can run regular dental days on client's yards. We do yard dental visits where clients with 4 or more horses do not pay a visit charge. This can be arranged by contacting the Somerford Farm Clinic.
Vaccination/ Dental Reminders
You can choose to be sent reminders by us when your horse’s vaccinations/ routine dental are due. These are sent well in advance of the due date to give you plenty of opportunity to book on the zone.
Please be aware that it is your responsibility to ensure you book your vaccinations in in time, the reminders are just to help.
If you would like some advice from a vet over the telephone regarding your horse or pony, please contact the office, and we will arrange for a vet to give you a call as soon as practical.
