Amy was born and bought up on a farm where her parents also trained point to pointers. From a young age she was involved in helping with the farm work which included showing cattle and riding thoroughbreds. Amy's passion for riding was secured when she fell in love with a seventeen hand racehorse at four years old and this passion for riding has never left her. Once her parents retired from training the point to pointers, she went into showing, and from the family farm they now have several show horses which Amy competes in Hunter and Side Saddle classes at county level, including the Royal International Horse Show and the Horse Of The Year Show. Having this competition experience, enables Amy to relate to professional and elite athletes in the human and animal sphere.

Whilst Amy is away competing, two Chocolate Labradors (Rolo and Monty) and a German Shorthaired Pointer (Mila) are the yard mascots and make sure everything is in check for their return, and if she is lucky enough, Mila is allowed to be the lorry dog. 

Years of experience living alongside animals, and various work placements, gave Amy the determination and drive to become a Chartered Physiotherapist. This then enabled her to gain further qualifications to become a Veterinary Physiotherapist. 


The Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Animal Therapy

ACPAT is an organisation developed within the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy, which aims to lead the field and standards of animal Physiotherapy. The title "Chartered Physiotherapist" is protected by law and can only be used by physiotherapists who have achieved a high level of academic and practical training in all aspects of physiotherapy and are consequently qualified and registered to practice.  ACPAT members are fully qualified Chartered Physiotherapists (MCSPs) who have also trained in physiotherapy and rehabilitation for animals and have specialist knowledge in anatomy, biomechanics, physiology and pathology.
