The Equine hydrotherapy and rehab centre was established at Marston Stud in 2021 to provide top class care for all disciplines within the equine community.
Founder & Equine Osteopath
Natasha graduated from the European School of Animal Osteopathy and continued to follow her passion for Eventing producing a horse form 5 year old to 4*(now 5*) and established a thriving and success business with monthly clinics in Hamburg, Ireland and Newmarket. Covid and moving to Marston lead to Natasha refocusing, travelling less and establishing the hydrotherapy center at Marston Stud. She is fully aware of the rigours and requirements of the modern sports horse. This allows her to address structural and mechanical imbalances through manipulation and massage thereby reducing areas of tension and improving biomechanical function.
