Whether you are attempting to get your horse to attend its first clinic, competition or even be mounted for the first time to preparing for an Olympic debut – performance may need to be assisted or evaluated. Combining knowledge in traditional equine veterinary medicine including lameness, medical, reproductive or hormonal as well as behavioural insight can all assist when there appears to be issues hindering performance and development. With experience working with horses in all ages and disciplines, FEI PT Veterinarian, Dr Marvin J.Firth MRCVS aims to provide a logical approach to addressing problems being experienced with your horse and has access to a number of specialists (see Consultants) for further investigation should this be required. Programmes involving orthopaedic, medical, training and additional therapies can all be accessed should this be indicated. Performance consultations for riders can also be arranged with recognised and established sports psychologists with experience of equestrian disciplines.
