Hippokampos offers gentle osteopathic treatment for horses. Mary Bolingbroke and Mary Monro (known as “The Marys”) are experienced Registered Osteopaths with a passion for the health and welfare of horses. Using our knowledge and skill in cranial osteopathy (with over 40 years experience between us) we assess each horse’s health in terms of its history, current physical imbalances and mental and emotional wellbeing. We know that a horse can only perform to his/her best ability with a body in peak condition and a relaxed, confident state of mind. It helps if the rider is in good health too, so we also offer osteopathic care to riders.
“Equestrian art is the perfect understanding and harmony between horse and rider.” Nuno Oliveira.
