Nimrod Veterinary joins Pointing West Mercian to support fixtures this season

Nimrod Veterinary Products is an innovator in medicines and other veterinary products for horses. The company is to embark on a new partnership with National Hunt Point-to-Point fixtures across the West Mercian counties. The partnership will provide veterinary care at each of the 21 fixtures of the West Mercian Point-to-Point Association, Shelfield Park included, covering meetings across six counties: Gloucestershire, Hereford & Worcestershire, Staffordshire, Cheshire, and Warwickshire. The grand finale of the Point-to-Point season at Stratford Racecourse in May 2022 is built largely on the support of the West Mercian counties.

The Nimrod organization was founded by David Renney, a veterinary surgeon and former Point-to-Point rider. This experience provides Nimrod with a unique insight into the world in which horse vets are working. Nimrod’s products for horses comprise pharmaceuticals, and fluid-therapy and diagnostic products.

The West Mercian Point-to-Point Association, chaired by Jim Squires, who is Clerk of Course across multiple West Mercian fixtures, and whose secretary is Nickie Sheppard, wife of Ledbury National Hunt trainer Matt, has been a market leader in innovation in the sport, from introducing digital ticketing to creative partnerships.

Jim remarked, ”Our fixtures have largely been largely side-lined during two seasons when first weather then Covid contrived to thwart us. Yet there remains an undercurrent of enthusiasm for grass roots racing of this kind that remains undimmed, whether you are an owner of horses, rider or trainer, or a fan. We look forward to Nimrod’s support helping us get these events back to full strength this winter.”

And so say all of us.
