Brooke Maddison

Brooke Maddison

Dental Vet Assistant

Brooke assists Melissa on all calls.Together they work as a team to provide an extremely thorough, relaxed and efficient service. 

Brooke has been around horses all her life from owning her own to helping out, then working at Carol Thompsons riding school & she also studied equine rehabilatation at Bishop Burton College. Brooke has for the last few years worked as a full time groom so is a very capable handler of horses ...though she is going to get a shock when the shetlands strut in!!

Despite still working as a part time groom and alongside myself, Brooke somehow also finds time to work as a  photographer at horse events, so if you see her make sure you smile!!

When she does stop, Brooke loves to enjoy downtime with her boyfriend Andy, Collie Luna and their many friends. Holidays are definitly adventure filled with sky diving and hot air ballooning taking priority over a sun lounger! If you've not met Brooke before, you soon will!!!
