ABSTRACT: After working in an equine hospital for several years, with veterinary students helping out during their extra-mural placements, I decided to study towards a post graduate certificate in veterinary education. A couple of years after gaining the qualification I was ready to use my teaching skills in a more structured setting, but could not imagine life without nursing horses. For me, a teaching hospital seemed to be the perfect answer; I could get to nurse horses every day and pass my knowledge and practical skills on to veterinary students.
