Dan grew up in the practice, his father being Tony Harding and godfather Mike McMurtry, who together founded the practice as it now is in 1967. Having qualified from Liverpool and Leahurst in 1991, he worked in equine and dairy practice in Cheshire before moving to Nottingham to work in mixed equine and small animal practice. Dan remains true to the philosophy of mixed practice while striving to constantly improve standards in all disciplines within the practice.
Since returning to Ashbourne in 1997, Dan has seen the practices develop through a policy of always looking for the very best staff. Much of his non-clinical time now is spent ensuring that we have excellent staff and the best premises to work from.
Outside of work, family, travel and running take up most of his time, plus he has a keen interest in cycling.
