I live in the Staffordshire Moorlands, near Leek, and cover Staffordshire, and some parts of Cheshire and Derbyshire. I own my own horse, Azuro, the poster boy for most of my advertising (!) and have competed in dressage and eventing in the past, and enjoyed plenty of cross country and fun rides! These days I enjoy hacking and training at home with Azuro, when time allows!

I initially trained in the McTimoney Corley method of Animal Spinal Manipulation, and specialise in horses. I studied at the Oxford College of Equine Physical Therapy (OCEPT). Most recently I have also qualified as an Equine Vet Physiotherapist & Rehabilitation Specialist.

I am a member of the RAMP register, the new register for Animal Musculoskeletal Practitioners, and the professional association IRVAP, the Institute of Registered Vet and Animal Physiotherapists. I am qualified and insured in both Spinal Manipulation and Vet Physiotherapy. Each year I attend various additional training days to continually keep my knowledge up to date.

I have additionally attended trained in saddle fitting, craniosacral work, myofascial release, kinesiology taping, as well as attending many lectures, seminars, dissections, all of which add to my skill set and knowledge.

I now also provide placement days for Equine Vet Physiotherapy students to complete their practical training days.

My motivation with horses is to see them recover from pain or discomfort, sometimes in front of my eyes, and enable them to move with freedom, in well fitting tack that doesn’t impede their movement, and do the job that the horse and rider enjoy together – whether this is hacking out, jumping, eventing, racing, dressage, fun rides.

Those of my clients that know me well, know that I occasionally shed a tear when I see their horse make an improvement that’s been difficult or long awaited, or move through something difficult for them – my work is very humbling and I thoroughly enjoy working with all the horses that I meet!

I love my work, and am committed to always learning more, and finding ways to impart my knowledge to you, to enable you to help your horses to be the best that they can be!
