Equine Physiotherapy

Equine physiotherapy is an extremely well recognised tool, utilised to aid performance and enhance recovery times associated with injury.

Physiotherapists combine clinical palpation with gait analysis to create unique treatment programmes to enhance your horse’s performance and overall wellbeing. 

The skilled physiotherapist can detect subtle changes to your horse’s musculoskeletal framework, which can ultimately prevent and reduce the chances of catastrophic injury.
