What is Equine Osteopathy?

Horses, like humans also suffer from musculoskeletal complaints!  We ask a lot more of our horses in this day and age and Equine Osteopathy and Sports Massage can help with a number of issues:

  • Injuries following a fall
  • Poor performance
  • Changes to gait or stride length
  • Reluctance to trot or canter on certain reins
  • General back pain (including Kissing Spines)
  • Behavioural changes including bucking, rearing, napping, kicking,
  • Refusing to jump
  • Head shyness
  • Arthritis
  • Tendon or ligament overstrain.

The owner/rider/groom must be present to hold the horse during evaluation and treatment.

Aftercare & Follow up Appointments

After treating if appropriate, advice will be provided on rest, stretches and exercise that the owner can perform with their horse. Follow-up treatments will then be discussed with the owner. Many horses respond rapidly to their first treatment, while other horses may need multiple treatments over the course of a few weeks or months.

Veterinary Act 1966 (Sec 19)

In accordance with The Veterinary Act 1966 (Sec 19) permission from your treating vet will be required prior to treatment.
