Angela Walsh (Director)


Since qualifying at Glasgow University I have always mainly been interested in equine medicine. I have just been awarded a Cert AVP from Liverpool University after three extra years of studying Equine Medicine and find that  it has increased my enjoyment in dealing with everyday cases.

I have recently bought a young Irish draft horse that I intend to compete at dressage when time allows!

Michelle Lawrence

BVM&S MRCVS GPcert Equine Practice

I qualified from Edinburgh university in 2003 and worked in mixed practice for three years before completing an equine internship at Chiltern Equine Clinic in Buckinghamshire. I have spent the last six years working in a purely equine clinic in the Cotswolds during which time I attained the GP certificate in Equine Practice.

I enjoy all aspects of equine work, but have developed a particular interest in the challenges of equine anaesthesia. Outside of work, I enjoy riding and competing and walking my rather lively springer spaniel “Teasel”.

I have been the office manager at Corner House Equine Clinic since 2005. I enjoy my strange mixture of duties which include answering the telephone & making appointments, doing the accounts and checking in blood & faecal samples!

I enjoy going on holiday, eating out and country walks (only in warm weather!)

Claire Burke

I have been with Corner House Equine Clinic since September 2008. I am a qualified veterinary nurse with over 14 years experience with small animals, exotics and equines. I find the equine work a new challenge and have learnt a lot of new skills from using the shockwave machine to helping horses to recover from anaesthetics.
To relax I spend time with my dogs and horses and the occasional trip to the USA to visit friends.
