Since I started out as a veterinary physiotherapist I was keen to support local up and coming riders in the form of sponsorship. As a rider myself, I appreciate how much money we spend on keeping our horses fit and healthy and doing what they do best. It seems we are always paying for something - shoes, teeth, worming, supplements or the latest gadget. Veterinary physiotherapy is not always on the top of the list, but can really make a difference. So I went about finding a rider to sponsor. I didn't appreciate how hard it would be to decide on only one person, from so many that were all worthy of my support. I decided to offer a package of treatments for a period of 12 months with the plan to change rider each year .......................... well that didn't really happen. I just seemed to add to the list. So I now have three sponsored riders that I support year on year. The nice thing about that is I get to share the journey with them and be part of their team. Chelsea Skelton, International Showjumper, Kerry Sedgwick, British Dressage and Hannah Scully, British Eventing. Almost a full complement of disciplines - I do like the variety!!
