Vet School Stash

Stash is now available to order through Tylers Horse and Country.

Every order gets sent out individually (delivery charge at a very reasonable £2) to wherever you are. There are more items than in previous years and we have tried to include both casual clothing and smarter items that are suitable for EMS. As there were some problems last year with gilet sizes being quite large we have included kids sizes this year (which are identical in design). Both jackets are also available in kids sizes. As with any embroidered items they are non returnable.
