Aidan graduated from Onderstepoort in June 2000 and joined Fourways Equine Clinic in the same year, where he spent three informative years under his mentor, Crocky du Preez. He then ventured abroad in order to expand his experience and knowledge in all aspects of the equine veterinary industry. He practised in the UK for four years, closely involved in the show-jumping, dressage and polo world. In 2008, he moved to Australia and practised on the Gold Coast and Melbourne. Here, Aidan enjoyed working with some of Australia’s leading Thoroughbred race horse trainers, gaining superb experience and knowledge. In 2012, Aidan decided to return to his homeland South Africa and join his old practice once again.
Aidan’s interest lies in all aspects of Thoroughbred racing with a special interest in lameness, poor performance evaluation and diagnostics.
He also enjoys a competitive game of golf, football, hockey and cycling during his time off!
