Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation

Sport horse health programme

We believe that PRIOR PREPARATION AND PLANNING PRODUCES PEAK PERFORMANCE and that PREVENTION is always better than cure.

Firstly, we need to determine if any undiagnosed problems are limiting performance and what performance aspirations you have for yourself and your horse.

A thorough clinical examination at rest concentrating on the musculoskeletal and respiratory systems is the first step in checking out your horse. If all is well we will then evaluate soundness and foot balance. Once we know if there are any matters to address we can move forward, either with a diagnostic and treatment plan or with a Peak Performance Program.

The Peak Performance Program is a program to record the current status of your horse and show you how to look at and examine your horses in a thinking manner to enable prompt detection of changes. We will also pass on suggestions as to ways you and the other members of your team may be able to help. We will therefore want to develop a relationship with you, your trainer and your horses physio and farrier to enable us all to communicate and work together as a team to prevent, detect and treat any conditions that arise.

Our aim is to keep your horse happy and in work.
