Dr Ed Richards (British)


Ed joined the team in Summerveld in January 2017 having spent several years in a predominantly sports horse practice near Newmarket, England. Ed grew up with horses, and has competed at affiliated level at eventing and show jumping, as well as representing the UK in Tetrathlon in 2011. Ed really enjoys the performance aspect of both sports horse and racing work, and was fortunate enough to work at the World Equestrian Games in Normandy 2014.

During his time at Bristol University he was President of the Veterinary School and was awarded colours in Modern Pentathlon. Outside of horses, Ed enjoys rugby and triathlon. Time allowing, he would like to eventually compete in an Ironman competition. He will be enjoying the warmth of SA until 2019.
