Ballinger Equine has today taken on new talent with Dr Harriet Gardner BSc BVetMed joining the clinical team. Having gained a BSc (Hons) in medical pharmacy at Cardiff University, Harriet went on to qualify as a veterinary surgeon at the Royal Veterinary College. She will be working with Susanna Ballinger and Eleanor Kigozi providing class-leading ambulatory equine veterinary care throughout the region.
An exciting new appointment
Ballinger Equine’s Veterinary Director, Dr Susanna Ballinger said today: “I am thrilled Harriet has joined our clinical team. Having spent some time with us earlier this year, Harriet already knows us, how we work and the commitment and high standards we expect.
Susanna added: “As our practice grows, we are seeking out and recruiting talented veterinary surgeons who champion our values and approach to veterinary practice and client service.”
Arriving for her first day with Ballinger Equine, Harriet said: “I’m excited to be joining such a highly regarded and friendly, supportive practice. And I’m looking forward to getting to know the clients and their horses and ponies.”
Harriet anticipates developing her particular professional interests of diagnostic imaging and internal medicine and, having been warmly welcomed by everybody at Ballinger Equine, is now expecting a busy summer in her new role.
Training at the Royal Veterinary College and living in Hertfordshire with her partner, Harriet is familiar with the practice service area and the wider region.
Away from work, Harriet is an accomplished skier, keen rider and polo player.
