Nigel Woodford


Nigel has worked predominantly in the UK, in equine practice, for over 30 years, both through visiting stables and within equine hospital teams. He has had sole veterinary charge of a large thoroughbred stud farm run by Swettenham Stud, in The Hunter Valley, Australia, worked in the equine hospitals at the vet schools in Pretoria, South Africa and at the University of Bristol Teaching Hospital.

Nigel has also worked in private equine hospitals in the south, the west and in Newmarket. He has been lucky enough to work at Badminton Horse Trials on cross country day as part of the veterinary team since 1991 and also lucky enough to work as part of the team at Lingfield Park Racecourse. He became a boarded equine surgeon in 2006. Nigel's main interest is in colic and colic surgery, although he has strong interests in many diagnostic and surgical aspects of equine veterinary health and disease.
