Office team

Meagan Cullen – Practice Manager has been part of our Agnew Equine team since November 2014, and in that time, she has established herself as the ‘go to problem solver’. This makes Meg the ideal person to be our practice manager, always on hand to help, support and manage the team. Meg’s main role is to oversee the smooth day to day running of the business, she also continues to have an input in reception duties and looks after the purchase ledger and credit control. She started riding at the age of 5 and has never lost her passion for horses. These days her time is largely taken up by her Jack Russell Reggie, two cats Jeffrey and Douglas – and her new rescue dog, Alf!
