About me

As a RAMP registered (Register or Animal Musculoskeletal Physical Therapists) equine multimodal physical therapist with my scientific background and passion for horse /rider biomechanics, combined with my personal love for classical dressage, eventing and techniques such as art 2ride, enlightened equitation, equitation science, ride with your mind, this combination makes my coaching and training sessions a little different. I am focussed on getting the best from you and you horse; improving fitness, improving skill level, gait, posture, biomechanics, performance quality, effectiveness and education, but all in a way that is appropriate for you and your horse at that particular time. I work on developing both horse and riders strength, balance, symmetry, and improving the harmonious relationship in different ways with a different outlook that is more based around what you and the horse need, whilst still aiming towards your overall goals. I coach people and horses from all disciplines, all levels, all ages, throughout Cheshire and surrounding counties, mainly in flatwork, ground work and in-hand work, show jumping and some cross country. It it my philosophy that the horse comes first not the sport so getting the horse and rider together as a great partnership in correct posture and biomechanics from the ground up using corrective exercises at the right time to ensure the horse avoids injury is my main aim. I also offer lessons to those who have horses undergoing rehabilitation programmes ensuring that the suitable prescriptive exercises are being carried our correctly at the appropriate time, that progression is consistent and the plan can be constantly reassessed and adapted where needed. I have been teaching successfully for over 25 years and still compete myself when I have the time!
