Aoife Byrne

I'm Irish but studied at the University of Veterinary Medicine in Budapest, qualifying in 2007 with my degree & a doctoral research thesis. I started my career with an equine internship on the Curragh in Ireland for 12 months before working for an equine ambulatory practice for a further year. I wanted to gain equine reproduction experience so I followed this with a stud season, beginning in Argentina & then at the Beaufort Embryo Transfer Centre in Gloucestershire. Following that I worked at Rowe Equine incorporating the Equine Eye Clinic. When I got married I followed my husband (also an equine vet) to Norfolk where I now work for the Chapelfield Equine Clinic. My areas of interest are equine internal medicine, reproduction, ophthalmology & dermatology. In my free time I enjoy riding sidesaddle, sedately showing in the summer then galloping at speed hunting & racing in the winter!
