I’m so excited to announce that I’m teaming up with Sarah Davenport, of EquiMotion to offer horse physio treatment at her yard. Having treated Sarah’s horses ten years ago when she used to bring them to a clinic I held in Derbyshire, I’m delighted that we’re able to work together again now.
The most exciting part of this for me is the opportunity to help more horses, and in turn you, the owners, riders and handlers. I’m available during school hours, and time is precious. The time spent in my car is time that I can’t be treating, so less time in the car equals more treatment time available.
I’ve held a clinic at Daneswood Dressage in Worcestershire for nearly 15 years now, so I know the format works well for the vast majority of horses. Most Riding Club and competition horses are used to travelling to lessons and competitions, and they take travelling for physio in their stride. Years of experience, and positive feedback from clients, means I’m confident that the benefits of physio are felt equally well from treatment at a clinic as they are from a home visit. Because I’m not travelling, I’m able to pass the savings on to you and offer treatment at a lower cost, which makes it more affordable. For the inexperienced horse, a trip out for an enjoyable and relaxing treatment session is a great introduction to going out and about. And it’s great for you and me to be part of a team, using a shared pool of knowledge where needed to help us come up with the best solution for each individual.
To be able to offer this close to home as well is such a privilege, and I’m immensely grateful to Sarah for inviting us to share her yard.
As a general rule, during term time I’m at Daneswood Dressage on Wednesdays, and EquiMotion on Fridays, although there are sometimes other options available so it’s always worth dropping me a message through The Horse Physio website.
Client Boo Riley has been bringing her horses to my clinics for a couple of years now, both to help with Veterinary rehabilitation and to help promote top performance. Boo says of her horse Spring, “He clearly loves his treatments, yawning his way through them. He moves more freely afterwards. I feel more confident asking Spring to do his best for me, knowing that Sue is helping me to keep an eye on how he’s coping.”
