Meet The Team

Angela is inspired and constantly strives to make the world a better place for horses in all walks of life and suggests that:

​‘Whether we support an equestrian discipline or not, as Therapists we should be proud to treat ALL horses as they ALL need our help.’

​She has worked with traumatised, abused and rescued horses and ponies (far too common place in our society) to Group 1 world class racehorses and Grand Prix Dressage and Show Jumping horses They are all horses to her, each fulfilling a unique equestrian role and more often than not, need our support.

​Many people say Angela has a special gift with horses when observing her at work, but she feels that her interaction with horses and the success of her therapy is based largely on a heightened sensitivity of intuition, trust and respect and above all, a deep passion to help fix them.  She draws on her knowledge of science constantly during therapy, whilst also working very closely with the spirit of the horse.  She seems to instinctively know exactly where to work on the horse, which in turn encourages it to work with her, resulting in both amazing and tangible results. Her skills and talents are shared with every single student who trains with EMA.

Angela is proud to awarded the status of Fellow of the International Society of Animal Professionals which was founded to improve animal welfare around the world. She also has corporate membership for EMA. She is also a Council Member of IRVAP (Institute of Registered Veterinary & Animal Physiotherapists), with a primary focus on advising IRVAP on legal matters.

Our work with Veterinary Surgeons and other Professionals

There has been a significant and encouraging shift towards complementary therapies in both the human and animal domains over the past decade. We believe that the expertise of Veterinary Surgeons, supported by Equine Manual Therapists and other professionals, plays a crucial role in promoting the overall health and well-being of horses. Horse owners and professionals need to embrace the idea of successful collaboration as a team of specialists, blending both the "traditional approach" and the "complementary approach." To support horses to be the best they can be and remain pain and injury free.

EMA’s top tip to horse owners

With horses, it is crucial to approach everything with patience, kindness, and a slow pace. It's important to remember that horses are highly sensitive and spiritual animals who thrive in a peaceful environment. Instances, where horses experience pain, anxiety or exhibit negative behaviour, can often be attributed to human intervention and the way we manage them. We often push them to perform tasks even when they are not physically or emotionally ready or capable.

In return for their love, hard work, and loyalty, it is our responsibility to give something back to them. Engaging in regular manual therapy is an excellent means to promote the happiness and well-being of your horse while also strengthening the bond between humans and horses.
