Whether your horse is a high-level competition animal or a family hack, they are all susceptible to injury. Subtle changes in behaviour or performance can be an early indicator that something is not quite right.
You might notice that they have difficulty striking off on the correct canter lead or seem unable to bend to one side, refuse a jump or knock poles they would normally clear. Perhaps your horse pins its ears when the saddle appears, bucks while saddled, saddle slips while riding, or they have girthing issues. Or your horse has cut itself and is slow to heal.
Regular physiotherapy can also pick up subtle signs before they become bigger, or more chronic problems.
As an animal physiotherapist, I will work in collaboration with your veterinary surgeon, equine dentist, farrier, saddle fitter, etc., to ensure the best treatment program is created for your horse to regain optimum performance levels.
