Mr John C Gilliver
Being the son of a Dairy Farmer, I have been exposed to livestock from an early age. I started riding at the age of 6 & started breeding ponies at the age of 14. I was focused on a Veterinary Career from an early age & was fortunate to graduate from The University of Liverpool with honours in 1980.
My first Veterinary employment was in North Yorkshire in a mainly large animal practice & whilst there developed a keen interest in equine stud work. I established Garwood Veterinary Practice in April 1989 as an equine facility to deal with all aspects of equine work & historically some agricultural clients.
This subsequently has developed into Gillivervet. Outside Veterinary work I am actively involved with horses, riding, breeding, showing, hunting and judging (SHBGB & CHAPS panel judge) I have served as a Council Member of the BEVA for 6 years being responsible for AI & Riding Establishments. I am also a committee member of the local SHBGB N.W. Group.
