Having grown up as the son of a vet and the grandson of an avid horse racing enthusiast it was of little surprise that having graduated from Bristol University in 2006 Tristan looked to combine his veterinary degree with his love of horse racing. He was lucky enough to join Greenwood, Ellis & Partners soon after graduation as part of a 2 year racing internship position that involved working within the racing ‘arm’ of one of the thoroughbred industry’s powerhouses, both in the UK and Dubai. He then continued to work privately for that same organisation for a further 6 years, improving his skill set and gaining invaluable experience working with some of the world’s leading racehorse vets. Following a further 5 years servicing some of the larger and most respected training yards in Newmarket for another of the town’s large thoroughbred practices, Tristan finally moved back to NEH in the Autumn of 2019.
As expected, he is predominantly involved in the racing side of the practice and spends the majority of his time helping his trainers maximise and maintain the performance of their racing thoroughbreds by looking after all aspects of their veterinary needs.
