Dr Emily Sherlock


Dr Emily Sherlock re-joined the WEVC team in early 2018 permanently. Born and raised in England, growing up with pony club, eventing and even a spot of polo. She graduated from the Royal Veterinary College, London in 2013.

After graduation, Emily worked in a mixed practice for six months. This was followed by an opportunity to work on a commercial thoroughbred stud farm in Japan for a year. This introduction to the hand’s on world of thoroughbred breeding sparked an interest in reproductive work and foal management.

At the conclusion of this contract, Emily returned to the UK to commence an 18 month internship at the Liphook Equine Hospital, one of the largest specialist equine veterinary practices in the UK. During this time there she gained invaluable experience in the fields of sport horse lameness diagnostics.

Following the different hemisphere summers seemed a great perk of veterinary work and what has followed is continuation of summers. A season in Australia on a polo farm, using AI and embryo transfer techniques then back to the UK for six months general equine practice.

In 2017 Emily came to New Zealand for the Southern Hemisphere breeding season, staying on and joining the team at WEVC. She returned to UK in April for the Northern Hemisphere season and rejoined the WEVC team in August.

She also has amazing artistic skills with drawing and painting animals.
