Hannah Cooper and her horse Molly

I showjump my 11 year old Grey Dutch Warmblood mare Molly at British Showjumping affiliated level. I understand the importance of regular treatment and as maintenance Kate normally treats her every 6 months. 

Molly works well and so I am quickly aware of any problems. Recently Molly jumped a jump awkwardly and twisted in the air before landing, she didn’t feel right afterwards but Kate managed to squeeze me in the next day.  The difference the treatment made was very clear and Molly soon returned to full work under the guidance of Kate.

I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Kate to people as I strongly believe in the McTimoney method, not only is the treatment fantastic as she is a very confident and competent practitioner, who I trust my horses’ well being with. I have also always found her very approachable and easy to talk to.

Molly enjoys the treatment and will happily stand taking it all in.  In addition, Kate leaves me with detailed aftercare and stretches to get the most out of each treatment.

Laura Richardson, British European Agility Team Member

I have 3 dogs and all are treated by Kate. The youngest is Mia, a Staffordshire Bull Terrier who I compete at a National and International agility level and we train 2-3 times a week as well as routine walks and runs. 

As agility is a high impact sport for Mia I thought that it was important for her to be regularly treated using the McTimoney. I find that the treatment helps Mia with her flexibility and also her general soundness, she seems to worked better and her performance is improved giving them an increase in mobility to gain the competitive edge.

My older two dogs Louie 13 another Staffie and Teal 11 a Labrador also get treated, as they are older dogs they can also benefit from the treatment and I find that when they have been treated they are much more spritely and have a new skip in their step from the freeness that the treatment has given their older bodies. The benefits of this treatment can be clearly seen in the dog’s everyday lives and the activities they do.

I find Kate to be very professional and approachable and she will always explain what she is doing and why she is doing it. She will also explain aftercare and what to do and not to do with my dogs after the treatment. She is very flexible with appointments and will try to fit in with your schedule as best she can. She also has a great way of explaining things in layman’s terms, she is also very understanding to the needs of my dogs and is caring and sympathetic towards them and my emotional ties with them. 

Mick Ward, Para Equestrian Carriage Driver

I compete at both Regional and National Driving Trails with Toby my Welsh X and hope to be in the selection group for 2012 World Championships which are being held in Pau France.

I have been using Kate’s services for over 6 years now, not only with my driving pony but also with our riding horses. They all get a MOT once a year with Kate and any treatment they require. Before any treatment Kate runs through what she is going to do and what you need to do after. Kate has shown my groom what stretches to do with Toby before a competition helping him to be nice and loose 

After one of our earlier 2011 competitions, Toby rotated his poll and pelvis, this was causing him to resist the bit and not allowing him to bend. After his treatment with Kate we were back to our winning ways, winning the Erddig Novice Pony class, with our best dressage score of the season.
