From the moment humans tamed the first horse, we gained ourselves a heavy lifter in terms of agriculture and transport. Now that their place in those endeavours has largely been replaced by machinery, we are lucky to be able to enjoy the companionship and competition that horse ownership can bring.
Working in the heart of this district, with its rich tradition of horsemanship, and the legendary folklore surrounding Banjo Patterson's The Man From Snowy River, we are fortunate to provide veterinary services to some of the country’s best horsemen and women.
Snowy Vets provides a range of services to ensure your horse is performing at its best, and are always looking to expand our capabilities to meet the needs of horses and their owners.
“When I bestride him, I soar, I am a hawk: he trots the air; the earth sings when he touches it; the basest horn of his hoof is more musical than the pipe of Hermes. ” - William Shakespeare, Henry V
"He hails from Snowy River, up by Kosciusko's side, Where the hills are twice as steep and twice as rough, Where a horse's hoofs strike firelight from the flint stones every stride, The man that holds his own is good enough. And the Snowy River riders on the mountains make their home, Where the river runs those giant hills between; I have seen full many horsemen since I first commenced to roam, But nowhere yet such horsemen have I seen." - A.B. “Banjo” Patterson, The Man From Snowy River
