Poppy’s mum Jenna called Jess out after her pony Katy was struggling on the left rein, in particular in canter. After a thorough physiotherapy assessment we discovered Katy had a sore back and tension in both shoulders, presenting more on the left side. After two physiotherapy sessions and lots of home exercises given to Poppy.
Following these sessions Katy was much easier to ride on the left rein and was now cantering without resistance. Poppy and Katy then qualified for HOYS (horse of the year show) coming a very respectable 9th!
Well done Katy and her fantastic jockey Poppy. They both have an exciting future ahead of them I’m sure!
