Facilities and Equipment

Equine Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation Centre is based on a 600-acre picturesque sheep and beef farm in Clevedon, South Auckland. The centre is set up as a sports medicine practice and also takes horses needing rehabilitation and general veterinary care. Experienced equine vet, Kelley Barrington lives onsite and horses have full access to the facilities and equipment at the centre.

For horses that don’t need to stay at the centre for rehabilitation and care, appointments onsite are still welcomed and preferred, however Kelley is available to travel to various locations by arrangement.
