Emiliano graduated from Cordoba University in 1997. Following an externship at the University of Hannover in Germany, he moved to Ireland to taste the ‘rural’ mixed practice. He then moved to England where he had the opportunity to specialise in equine practice for four years before moving back home to Spain with his wife. They both started their own practice with great success based at Mijas racetrack. Here, race horses, lameness work and a bit of sunshine in between kept him very busy.
In 2009 he returned to England and settled in Berkshire with his family. He worked in a large equine referral practice, investigating and treating a range of equines from sport horses to show ponies.
He then started Espinar Equine Associates, where he feels he can offer a more personal touch.
Emiliano is a dedicated equine veterinary surgeon with extensive knowledge and experience. He particularly enjoys the challenges of lameness and performance issues, diagnostic imaging, pre-purchase examinations (vettings) as well as certain standing surgeries such as dental extractions. Whilst in England, he was awarded an Equine Certificate in Equine Practice by the RCVS and is an RCVS Advanced Practitioner. He has also become a certified member of ISELP (the International Society of Equine Locomotor Pathology). This commends his expertise with lameness and equine performance issues. He is also an FEI Permitted Treating Veterinarian.
One of his main principles is clear communication with owners. He likes taking the time to answer questions, happily sharing his knowledge in order to help. Alongside hours of CPD, he regularly attends courses in his commitment to being at the forefront of equine veterinary care. Family and outdoor sporting activities are his favourite. He is always up to a challenge, importantly in good company!
