Buffy Shirley-Beavan

Qualified as a vet some years ago - longer than she looks. After 5 years working in south Gloucestershire she set up her plate as a solo trader at Nigel Twiston- Davies’s yard with a £3000 loan from Nigel. Things went well and now as Summerhill Equine Vets, Buffy has a partner in the business Tim Beauregard, four other great vets, soon to be 7 in total with 3 angels and 3 in the office plus our lab team, Tim and H all working together as the Summerhill Dream Team.


Buffy has worked at the top level of jump and flat racing, eventing, polo, dressage and show jumping. Each discipline brings something to the table that enhances what we do across the board in our endeavour to help horse people of all types achieve the best they can with the horses in their care. Basic nutrition and MOT checks to maintain a horse pain free and well muscled form our daily bread and butter and we never stop learning and trying to do our job that bit better.
