About Meg

Growing up in the countryside, animals have always formed key members of the family for Meg. From a very young age she spent her weekends and school holidays helping at the riding school, until getting her first pony, Lady, at 13. Lady turned out to be extremely nervous around people and with the help of friends and professionals, Meg spent a lot of time earning her trust, both on the ground and under saddle, sparking her initial interest in the field of equine rehabilitation and training.

Following this passion, Meg completed the stage one courses through Intelligent Horsemanship in 2014, covering topics such as:

  • Horse psychology
  • Groundwork
  • The horse as an athlete
  • Introduction to saddle fitting
  • Feeding and nutrition
  • Foal handling and stud work

Between gaining valuable industry experience on a range of yards and kennels, and competing her new horse, Buddy, Meg completed her level 3 extended diploma in horse management, riding and coaching, at Moulton College. However, through tackling new struggles with Buddy, and seeing the ongoing orthopaedic issues of her childhood dog Bertie, degenerate with age, Meg came to realise the significance of the physical demands our animals face. Her passion for animal health and happiness ultimately lead to her decision to train in veterinary physiotherapy, completing her BSc(Hons) degree at Moreton Morrell college, through Coventry university.
 
During her studies, Meg was fortunate enough to observe multiple well-respected practitioners, as well as develop her own practical skills across a range of orthopaedic, neurological and sports performance cases. She undertook additional training to become certified in Kinesio-taping and is always looking for new ways to develop her skills; the latest of which is the Society of Master Saddler’s Introductory Course in Saddle Fitting, which she is currently part way through and due to complete in April 2021.
Since embarking on this challenge, her canine, equine, and now feline collection has grown, and in addition to her pony Lady, she now has Ozzie the labrador, Rocky the warmblood and Tilly the not-so-stray cat, to keep her physiotherapy skills well-rehearsed. Today, Meg is a fully qualified and insured veterinary physiotherapist, accredited by the National Association of Veterinary Physiotherapists (NAVP). She runs a mobile service for large and small animals in the midlands, covering roughly a 50 mile radius from Market Harborough, Leicestershire, where hopes to improve the comfort, strength and biomechanical function of many animals.
