The Sussex Equine Hospital was founded in 1951, it was formerly known as the Arundel Equine Hospital. The hospital moved from Arundel to Ashington in July 2017. The brand new, state of the art, purpose built facilities allow us to provide our patients and clients with the best standards of equine veterinary health care.

The practice comprises 20 dedicated equine vets all with interests in different equine veterinary disciplines, supported by a large team of nurses, grooms and office staff. Our aim is to provide excellence in equine veterinary practice, made possible by vets that care passionately about their patients and provide a unique service tailored to each individual client’s needs.

The Sussex Equine Hospital provides ambulatory equine veterinary services throughout East and West Sussex, and into Surrey and Hampshire. We care for all types of equine patients from elite sport and racehorses to children’s ponies. The hospital also accepts referral cases from all over the south of England and the ambulatory vets regularly perform vettings throughout Europe.
