I would highly recommend Fi as an equine physiotherapist, she has treated Ralph and Zoomy for a number of years going above and beyond giving me stretching exercises and advice over the phone while away competing, fitting them in for last minute appointments when they needed them, especially after competitions and hunting. Everything was clearly explained and she is calm and patient at all times.
