Sports Horse Rehabilitation Programme

Cindy has had great success with rehabilitating sports horses here in the peaceful countryside of Glen Fern who have had either physical or emotional setbacks.

Through use of the many modalities and complementary therapies at her disposal, her great sensitivity for  animals and her extensive riding and competition experience, she has shown a great ability to bring horses back to their natural state of health and physical and emotional well- being.

On arrival, horses are individually assessed by top- class Lambourn Veterinary Practice partner, Liz Brown ( British Senior Event Team Veterinarian) together with Cindy. Any shoeing and foot balance issues are addressed by Robert MacIntosh (British Senior Event Team Farrier). Once Cindy and Liz have identified the physical issues Cindy will assess the horses' emotional state  (she is a fully qualified Member of the Healing Trust) Guided by the horses' needs, she then decides on a recovery programme which will include all or some of the therapies listed below as well as veterinary treatment, the more traditional practices, therapeutic riding and groundwork. Cindy is a fully qualified Equine Massage and Myofascial Release Practitioner so uses these therapies routinely on all the horses in her care.

The small yard, excellent facilities and wonderful fitness work and hacking on Exmoor all help bring horses back to full fitness. Cindy does the therapeutic schooling herself, and the individualised programme for each horse and personal attention from the small and dedicated team help to create happy, healthy horses well prepared to return to the competitive arena. Cindy's own regular competition at top international level also means that horses showing  ability for eventing can maximize their competitive potential while based at Glen Fern.

If you have a horse requiring any kind of rehabilitation, please contact Cindy with any questions.

We have numerous success stories of horses who were sent to us as their 'last chance' who we have been able bring back to successful competitive careers.

I just want to say a huge thank you to you Cindy! Grace, my little Arab mare, has not been her usual self for the last year since I had her back from being loaned out, but wow a couple of visits later by Cindy and I have the forward going little power machine I had forgotten that she was! Amazing to watch how Grace responded to the zoopharmacognosy work and the myofascial release was incredible - if Grace could talk she would be thanking Cindy herself!

Having had Cindy work on my horse, I can and will be highly recommending her! My horse was unlevel in his hindquarters and moving short behind. After 2 visits, his hips have levelled out and he is sound and happy- I can't ask for more than that!
