All horses are athletes, from racehorses or eventers to pony club ponies or the family hack. No matter what level of use of a horse, they all may benefit from regular physiotherapy treatments.

You may have noticed a change in your horse’s behaviour or performance. They may have become unwilling to work in a correct outline, jump or perform lateral movements; this may be an indication of the start of a treatable condition. Common conditions that may benefit from physiotherapy include:

  • Tendon / ligament injuries including : Check ligament sprains, Collateral ligament damage, Proximal suspensory desmitis.
  • Back Problems
  • Bone Spavin
  • Splints
  • Infected Wounds
  • Fractures
  • Muscle asymmetry.
