Trained with the Institute of Complementary Animal Therapies.


Initial Assessment and Treatment

A thorough history will be taken, followed by an evaluation of your horse's conformation and a movement assessment in walk and trot. In some instances Laura may ask for your horse to be lunged.

Laura treats the whole horse paying particular attention to problem areas and compensation patterns.  Aftercare advice and exercises will be offered.

Time: Approx 2 hours


Follow Up Treatments

After the initial assessment and treatment a follow up appointment will be made. The timescale will depend on the findings of the first session. It may be the following week or it may be in a few months. If problem areas are found they can very rarely be fully treated in just one session, but Laura prides herself on being honest and realistic and takes into account what the owner is trying to achieve with their horse.

Time: 1 hour

Box Rest Massage

If your horse is on box rest, massage can help sustain muscle tone and reduce muscle wastage, as well as being relaxing for your horse and reducing boredom. Laura will show you a few techniques you can use to help your horse in between sessions.

Time: 1 hour


Pre and Post Event Massage

Before and after a competition are crucial times and massaging and stretching the horse before an event can help your horse give you that little extra and give you the edge over your competitors. A supple, thoroughly warmed up and stretched horse can give you that extra clearance showjumping, put you a nose in front racing or give you that extra mark in your dressage test.

The post event massage is equally as important as it helps remove lactic acid and therefore reduce the risk of muscle spasms aiding a speedy recovery. Performing passive stretches is also a very quick way to assess injury.

Things to remember

  • Permission from your vet must be sought before ANY therapist can treat your horse. You can simply call your vet and ask them if they have any objections to your horse being treated and gain their permission, or I can contact the vet on your behalf.
  • Appointments should be made to avoid feeding times if on a yard.
  • Horses should not be ridden straight after a treatment so appointments should be made with this in mind.
  • Horses must be clean and dry.
  • The owner or a responsible person must be present.
