Owner Chloe Roberts is an EEBW Practioner (2013) & Equine K-Taping Therapist specialising in rehabilitation.
Equine rehabilitation complements veterinary medicine much the same way that human physical therapy complements human medicine. Its methods are used to address both short term injuries and chronic conditions. This practice can also help to speed up surgical recoveries.
Equine rehab can address anything from tendon and ligament injuries to restricted joint mobility, bone and/or tissue healing, inflammation, neurological conditions, injury prevention and even maintenance programs to aid against the effects of ageing.
As a primary factor, pain responses in horses can be seen through a change in temperament whether on the ground and under saddle. As horse owners, the question we always ask our self, is where do we start? Our resources will assist you and your horse on this journey to recovery by taking out the guess work. Our team will provide boutique management of your horse’s veterinary program to assist owners and riders achieve all of the vital weekly goals and milestones that form part of the recovery process.

- Tendon Injuries
