Equine Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy can help your horse by relieving pain, increasing mobility, promoting healing and can help to achieve and maintain optimal performance levels. Often horses only display subtle signs of pain or discomfort such as a change in behaviour, a change in performance, stiffness or a change in their normal movement pattern.


Rider Physiotherapy

As the horse and rider is a partnership, any stiffness or pain in the rider will have an affect on how the horse moves and vice versa. Maeve is an expert at assessing where the issue lies in the partnership and treating this to ensure the optimum performance from both horse and rider.
