Equine Initial Assessment
(1.5 - 2 hours)

A full assessment will be completed on your horse. We will also discuss your management practices and any possible alterations to this to promote the wellbeing of your horse. These findings will form the basis of treatment during the session and a treatment program moving forwards.


Equine Follow Up
(1 + hours)

Once an 'Initial Assessment' has been completed, each session following on from this will be 'Follow Up', this will involve a brief reassessment and discussion to identify progress made with your horse since the previous appointment. Treatment will be administered depending on the individual, and alterations made to the program where necessary. This is a shorter session and times may vary depending on the patient.
