Initial Consultation and Occasional Clients - Approximately 2hrs - £60

We will begin the appointment by having a brief discussion about the history of the horse and any concerns you may have, before moving on to the static and dynamic assessment.  During the static assessment, I will view various factors such as the horse's posture, conformation and condition.  Moving on to the dynamic assessment, I will then view the horse being walked, trotted, backed up and turned in circles to see where any asymmetries lie or if there are any issues.  I am also happy to view the horse ridden or lunged, but please let me know prior to the appointment so I can allow for enough time.  After the dynamic assessment I will move on to the palpation, during which I will work through key muscle groups checking for adhesions and tight, sore areas.  Once I have ascertained where the issues lie, I will move on to the massage treatment and where appropriate make use of my therapy equipment for no extra charge.  After the massage I shall apply some passive stretches to the horse, and where possible, demonstrate and explain some exercises for the client to do in between appointments.  At the end of the appointment I will provide a full write up report via email of my findings and treatment as well as recommendations.  Please get in touch to discuss.

Follow up appointments - within 2 - 12 weeks of initial consultation as per my recommendation and continuous regular appointments at recommended intervals   - Approx 1 - 1.5hrs - £55

Similar to above, but the static and dynamic assessments and treatments will be tailored to the horse. 

Six Week Prehabilitation Course - £40 per week

Please see the Equine Prehabilitation page for full details.  This course will work towards the reduction in the chance of injury or re-injury occurring by improving elements such as joint range of motion and core strength.  This will include an initial consultation and two follow up appointments with me at two weekly intervals, where as well as treatment, I will devise a six week plan of daily static and dynamic exercises for you to complete tailored to your horse's needs.  In the weeks in between appointments we will schedule a virtual meeting via Zoom or FaceTime to discuss your progress and make any alterations to the plan as necessary.  Please contact me for more information

Rehabilitation - £70 per appointment (recommended every 2-4 weeks)

With my extensive toolkit and experience, I am able to create rehabilitation plans for all spinal, pelvic and limb conditions.  Please see the Equine Rehabilitation page for further details or get in touch to discuss.

Polework Sessions  - 30 mins/1hr - private and group sessions (up to 4 people)

The polework sessions can be completed from the ground in hand, by long reining or lunging, or ridden, or a combination!  These sessions are completely tailor made to suit yours and your horse's requirements and are open to both regular massage clients and clients just requiring some inspiration to help build their horses up correctly.  I am happy to add a polework session on to a massage treatment (for a small surcharge) or hold separate sessions in between massage appointments.

As a result of the Veterinary Act (1966) and the subsequent exemptions; it is ILLEGAL for any person, other than the owner of the animal, to treat an animal unless the permission of the animals Veterinary Surgeon is SOUGHT and OBTAINED.

The implications of the Veterinary Act (1966) are to safeguard the Welfare of Horses.  As a direct result, the Equine Masseur must contact the Veterinary Surgeon used by the client and gain permission to treat the animal.

There are many therapists of varying specialism working outside the parameters of the Veterinary Act (1966).  These individuals are BREAKING THE LAW.  They are often not INSURED, or not members of a professional body.

The Veterinary Surgeons Act, passed in Parliament in 1948 to protect the welfare of sick and injured animals from treatment by unqualified persons.
