Horse Therapy

Unleash your horse’s
true potential

Horses can’t tell you when they’re in pain. Instead, they show it in their behaviour, their gait and their gallop. So when your horse is acting a little off, or not performing to the best of their ability, you know something’s up.

We’ll get to the root of the problem, using the hands-on soft tissue technique Equine Muscle Release Therapy EMRT. Our founder Claire Townsend is a qualified practitioner, and can diagnose and treat a number of conditions:

 

  • Musculoskeletal problems
  • Lameness
  • Ligament and tendon injuries
  • Stifle lock
  • Head shaking
  • COPD
  • Sacroiliac dysfunction
  • Neurological conditions
  • Poor performance
  • Change in behaviour

What’s Equine Muscle Release Therapy?

It involves a thorough analysis of your horse’s actions and demeanour, before a range of treatments including gentle soft tissue rolling, range of movement stretches and kinesiology taping. This helps release endorphins, increase mobility, improve blood circulation and reduce stress levels and much more.

The technique can increase a horse’s recovery rate by up to 33%, and it’s why so many of the world’s elite equine professionals trust us to bring their eventers, show jumpers, dressage horses, polo ponies and racehorses back to their best.
