Meet Ebony Turner

vetsouth equine tech ebony and tiger

Meet Ebony Turner, another one of our fantastic Equine Techs at our Findlay Road clinic. 

Ebony joined the team in early July and we caught up with her to learn a bit more about her and why she loves her job!

What were you doing before you came to VetSouth?

I was a Stable Foreman/Trackwork rider for Kelvin and Aimee Tyler Thoroughbred racing for 5 years at Riverton Racecourse. Recently I have been attending race meets and helping behind the start gates.

Favourite part of your job?

Working with the horses of course! But I also enjoy the variety of the job -  whether it be an injury, illness, routine dental or even a foot abscess, no day is the same! I find equine fracture repairs really interesting and love to see the recovery and return to racing/competing/pleasure riding. Equally, wound repair and management is high on the list! I am really passionate about horses and helping them be in tip-top condition and the best they can be health-wise.

Tell us more about you and what makes you tick?

I am southern born and bred in Riverton. I have my thoroughbred trainers license! I am currently training three racehorses. I own 5 horses including my racehorses. One of my horses is a whopping 30 years old, I also have a rising 2yo Warmblood/Thoroughbred cross that I look forward to producing into a competitive all-rounder. I am also a NZTR acknowledged rehomer, which is very rewarding, finding off the track thoroughbreds their forever home.
