Horse riders are assessed and treated in the Holmer Green Clinic.

A mounted Rider Assessment can also be performed at your yard and provides useful information on your actual riding posture. A Rider Assessment allows us to determine exactly which areas of your body need to be addressed through physiotherapy and exercise. A physiotherapy assessment of the horse can also be performed at the same time if required.
