The South Island's foremost equine clinic


Located on the outskirts of Christchurch, Canterbury Equine Clinic is a progressive equine facility providing both first opinion and specialist referral services. We have a long-established association with the racing and breeding industries and many of our veterinarians are highly experienced in other disciplines, working with all types of sport and leisure horses.

Your horse's complete care, under one roof

Canterbury Equine Clinic offers a fully equipped equine hospital including a spacious stable area, yards and paddocks on three hectares of land. Our patients range from champion racehorses and sporthorses through to much-loved pleasure ponies and donkeys. We provide equal enthusiasm and dedication to each case and pride ourselves on providing the most up to date and appropriate care for our patients.

“Thank you for making Teddy's first vet visit such a positive one. I was so impressed by how calm and caring you all were. I was worried about how he would react as he is so young but you were all so patient with him, thank you!"
