We have invaluable experience gained in the field of sports medicine, working with some of the best vets, riders, farriers and, of course, horses. We aim to use this experience to the benefit of all our clients, whether they ride at Grand Prix, professional or amateur competition levels, or simply for pleasure. The work we do can provide the extra 5% you need, and we believe every horse can and should have the benefit of our craft.

Foot balance, joint problems, tendon or ligament injuries, conformation or muscular issues can all cause lameness. Using experience, knowledge (and the latest technology), we specialise in fixing lameness issues with your horse.
