Twin Horse Vets to Raise Money for Spinal Charity

Identical twin equine vets, Wendy and Alison Talbot, are preparing to put their best feet forward for this year’s London Marathon, having endured a gruelling training schedule, beset with injuries.

Wendy, a National Equine Manager for Zoetis UK Ltd, suffered a suspected cervical fracture last year. When she was given the all-clear she pledged to raise funds for Spinal Injuries Association by running the London Marathon. Twin sister Alison, a Clinical Teacher in Equine Orthopaedics at University of Liverpool, vowed to join her, every step of the way. The twins have motivated each other to carry on despite incurring injuries between them, including a tibial stress fracture, achilles tendonitis and pulled muscles.
