I am delighted to have been with Ros since her early days and cannot recommend her highly enough.
Ros has treated several of my horses and is so in tune with them, it’s lovely to see. She goes above and beyond the call of duty and is currently treating my horse who has problems round his head and, thanks to Ros is like a different animal.
Ros has also patiently sorted my own aches and pains and proved to me acupuncture really does work!
I have recommended Ros to several friends who also now sing her praises.
I started getting ros out around January time just to get tilly checked out as she was coming to my yard. Turns out tilly actually was very stiff through her neck and over her back and bum, she also struggled to track up properly. This showed abit when I was riding as she was quite hard to turn and struggled to balance causing her to motor bike round corners, she also struggled to use herself correctly and pick up the left canter lead. In the first picture which was around November time last year(2017) roughly just before I started seeing ros. You can see tilly is hollow in the back and isn’t using herself in the correct manner. She also isn’t tracking up. The second picture is May 2018 you can see tilly is a different horse, she’s using herself properly working over her back and is tracking up! I can’t recommend ros enough she’s been fab with tilly, it’s amazing looking at the progress in 6 months after a few lessons and help from ros that has made tilly a much happier horse!
Thanks again! Ellie :)
Rosalind has been treating all of my horses/ponies and myself for a number of years now and I couldn’t recommend her enough. Not just for her physiotherapy and spinal manipulation skills, which are second to none, but also for her kindness, dedication and way with the horses. I come at Rosalind with all sorts of issues big or small ranging from the older retired horses/ponies and the riding school ponies needing a bit of tlc, maintaining our jumpers to help keep them in tip top condition and treating our home bred youngsters to help them grow correct from the start. No matter what the issue may be Rosalind is always there to offer a thorough and professional assessment and treatment programme for each individual and always gains fantastic results. Rosalind is fabulous at what she does and I highly recommend her to anyone who needs treatment on themselves or their horses. It’s a pleasure to have her as part of my team.

I contacted Roz 3yrs ago after my daughters new 17 yrs old pony kept trying to bite her when putting the saddle on. Initially we thought it was just stress of moving yards, new owner etc, but after a couple of weeks thought we'd get her checked, just in case there were other issues. I'm so glad we did as our pony had come with an ill fitting saddle that was digging into her back causing her pain.
Roz was amazing, she explained what was causing the problem, showed me what she was doing to help ease her pain and gave us exercises to do between visits.
Roz used laser treatment, stretching exercises, massage and advised on supplements for muscle strength as well as leaving her massager with me to work on her back at night. When Roz gave the go ahead, my daughter started riding bare back until we got our new saddle, allowing both horse and rider some much needed bonding time.
I have since got my daughter a new horse and my first call was to Roz to have her checked over. Getting Roz in early has allowed her to identify back & shoulder issues quicker and treatment has started to bring our sweet girl up to good health again.
I cannot recommend Roz highly enough, she is great with both horses and riders which, as a non riding mum, means I know my daughter and her horse are safe in the right hands.
