"I've had several sessions with Sune over the last few months. I started with a rider alignment session during which Sune identified several imbalances in my position that we worked on during the session and the change in my horse's way of going was amazing! I booked in for the next session and in between worked on what had been identified in the first session and it paid off! As is often the case, you fix one thing and it shows something else so we are a work in progress. A few days ago I was able to book on to the rider alignment session being run in conjunction with Jenny Folman using Franklin balls. This session was a real eye opener in my feeling for how I sit in the saddle and the aids I give my horse. Sune and Jenny together worked out some exercises for me to work on and I can't wait until our next session! I'd highly recommend both the rider alignment sessions and the rider alignment sessions with Sune and Jenny with the Franklin balls."
Horse & Rider Ridden Assessments
A lot of our clients have equine treatments done on their horses every few months, there are only a handful that have ridden assessments. On every visit we quite often see the same problems manifesting themselves on our horses. A lot of these issues are caused by the rider (sorry to say). We offer a service that sets us apart from most of the other veterinary physiotherapists out there by offering a ridden assessment. On a ridden assessment your position will be analysed, to make you aware of your position and any alterations that can be made.
Physiotherapy for the Horse Rider
Whether it's rehabilitation following a fall or an on-going programme to enable you to fulfil your riding commitments, we will be able to help you. Horse riders are notorious for 'Just putting up with it', after all, there are still stables to be mucked out and mouths to be fed - Although we do think some horses are able to sense when we aren't feeling 100%, we can't explain to them why their tea might be late because we are suffering from acute back pain after a fall from a horse. Please don't just 'get on with it', make an appointment and start the road to recovery with a professional touch.
