Diana has been passionate about the care of equines all of her life. She has competed  in unaffiliated/affiliated showjumping,  Western Trail and Showmanship, Dressage, and the occasional one day event and often judged and scribed for unaffiliated dressage at The Hand Equestrian Centre, Clevedon until closure in 2014.

She completed the PG Dip Veterinary Physiotherapy in April 2008 and now practices in North Somerset and Somerset areas.  With many years of experience in Orthopaedics/Neurosurgery  in the National Health Service Diana is able to tap in on this vast knowledge which is readily transferable to the equine when considering rehabilitation plans.

Clients range from International Dressage -Australian team 2017, International and National showjumpers, IMGA European Champions 2015/16/17, Western National Pleasure Champion 2012 to the much loved pet.  I have also been asked to travel to France to provide physiotherapy.

Having recently completed a Vocational Diploma in Sports Therapy following client requests, assessment, treatment and rehabilitation can now be offered for the rider. Optimising postural alignment and body awareness, control of muscular spasm and discomfort ultimately improves riders balance and strength and can only be beneficial for your horse.
