It’s not just a job, it’s a life long fascination, understanding and applying the science behind equine anatomy and biomechanics, equating form to function.
Riding since the age of 4 and competing nationally since the age of 11. From producing competition horses to collaborating with international sports teams and building solid partnerships with industry specialists, equine sport has always been an integral part of life.
Combined with a passion for science and always seeking to understand the ‘why’, each patient (equine or human) is treated as an individual.
