In ambulatory equine practice there is less opportunity to get hands-on experience of veterinary skills, because the support team is not always there, the presence of clients may not provide the best learning environment, and time pressure can be significant.
Exposure to cases is what's important for you right now, irrespective of whether you are carrying out the procedures yourself. Absorb all of the cases you can. The less exciting cases are often the 'bread and butter' of equine practice so don't switch off from them - if you do them well, you'll be halfway there.
We would also recommend when on placement concentrate on learning the 'other skills' that will benefit you including how to manage clients, making it work within the constraints of the facilities you have, listening to how cases are managed, how to make referrals, managing client costs, managing client expectations, working within equine practice teams, familiarity with medicines and equipment... these are all things you'll wish you paid attention to once you graduate. Cleaning up and resticking is not something to be sniffed at. This is an important part of being an equine vet so get it under your belt now. Watch the vet call clients, keep notes and write up reports. One day this will be you and it's not as easy to do as it looks!
