I had owned my young horse for only a few weeks when I first took her along to Bethan at the Vale Rehabilitation Clinic. Bethan picked up that the mare had a slight imbalance in her hind quarters. The right side was more developed than the left. Bethan corrected the stiffness and decided to strap her with sports tape. The idea was that on one side the tape would slightly restrict her movement and on the left side it would encourage her to open up and use these muscles more. I was absolutely shocked at the difference in her the next time I rode her. The mare has always had a powerful stride but suddenly she started to use her hind quarters to their optimum and the amount of power in her stride was incredible.
Thank you Bethan - you are such a valuable part of my horse's fitness and training programme.
I started regularly visiting the Vale Rehabilitation Clinic when I qualified for the Mitsubishi Badminton Grassroots Championships in order to prepare Joey to the best of our ability for the event season. I was immediately impressed with the way that Bethan and her team attentively looked after Joey. Bethan’s work is highly beneficial, Joey always feels straighter and more supple during schooling sessions. Also, Hydrotherapy sessions with Beth’s knowledge and experience have been so valuable to keep joey fit and strong especially through the winter months!
Bethan and her work is a valuable part of our successful team and I can’t thank her or recommend her enough!
