 “Amelia is quite simply the best physio I have ever worked with. The racehorses she treated for us have turned around and found their form having had disappointing results previously. She was a key part of our team and I hope will continue to be so”.

Hetta Stevens

 “The only physio I’ve known in racing to make a noticeable difference that you can see and feel”.

Kim Macgiven

 “Can only say we are so lucky to have Amelia on the island to work with our horses. She has worked wonders with Benjy in just a few weeks, would not hesitate to recommend her services”.

Gail Liron

“Amelia has looked after the yard I run, from 14:3 polo ponies to 17:2 dressage and everything in between, she is always more than caring, strikes up a friendship with the horse and is amazing to work alongside. Her kind and friendly way puts the most tense horse at ease! Can not recommend her enough…..Amelia is an asset to any horse owner”.

Rachel Jones

 “Amelia’s work saved the life of our horse with neurological issues. We wanted to give him every opportunity before having to make the final decision. He started responding to zoopharmacognosy, then Amelia released his physical pain and relaxed some of his taught muscles. She worked with us over a few sessions and we were delighted to see him respond so well. This was 3 years ago and he is still happy, healthy and actually doing light hacks. She has since worked with a variety of horses in our care and always makes a difference. I highly recommend her”.

Melanie McAlpine

 “A very clever lady who has a gift with horses! I can’t recommend her enough”.

Kate Rollings

“You’ve done such a great job on my horse that she can’t control her excitement that we’re jumping again! I’m having trouble staying on while she’s leaping in excitement  joking aside, she felt incredible yesterday during her first proper jumping session since Christmas. She’s properly digging deep and pinging over the fences and not touching anything and she seems 100% happier as well! Hope you had a lovely Christmas and new year! Xx”

Tasha Hough

“Amelia is one of the best equine physio’s I have used. Her eventing background combined with human physio training gives her a unique edge to her treatments. She uses a combination of watching horses on the lunge and straight, manual manipulation and machines, and this multi-faceted approach enables her to properly get a feel for what the underlying issue might be. Consequently her results are fantastic.”

Henrietta Paterson

“I can not recommend Amelia highly enough, She is absolutely fantastic with my horse who can be a bit sensitive at times. She takes her time and allows him as long as he needs to relax. She also explains everything she is doing and why as she goes along, which I love as I get a better understanding of what I need to work on in between treatments.”

Rebecca Frost

“Amelia is absolutely fantastic; although she has only recently started treating my horse I am already feeling the benefits, and will definitely keep him booked in with her on a regular basis! Really friendly as well as doing an amazing job with the horses – I cannot recommend her highly enough!”
