John Stewart worked in mixed veterinary practice for 15 years before setting up his own predominantly equine practice. He became interested in laminitis due to his own frustration in dealing with the condition, whichs led to his in-depth study of horses' feet. He has spoken at farriery conferences in Europe and the United States and was inducted into the International Equine Veterinarian Hall of Fame of the American Farriers Journal in 2012.
