Gemma was born and bred in the West Midlands and from an early age always demonstrated a passion for animals. It started off with riding lessons at a local riding school nearly 30 years ago.
This then led onto Gemma owning and producing her own string of horses. These have included county level showing, producing young horses both in hand and under saddle, private driving, dressage, show jumping, team chasing and cross country schooling over fences. Upon leaving school saw Gemma attend Moreton Morrell Agricultural College whilst working on a BHS competition yard and then go on to vet nursing in the Midlands for a number of years.
Gemma has worked on various professional equine yards for a number of years and it became apparent during this time, just how important the way an animal moves and uses its body is so essential to the well being of the animal.
Combined with such a love and passion for both small and large animal health, Gemma undertook the CEPT training course in Veterinary physiotherapy based at Nottingham Vet School and was awarded the Certificate in Veterinary Physiotherapy which is accredited to the ESVPS (European School of Veterinary postgraduate studies). And is also a fully qualified member of IRVAP (The Institute for registered Veterinary and Animal Physiotherapists).
This allowed Gemma to extend her knowledge and gain further experience in the world of veterinary physiotherapy which then in turn saw the practice develop to be able to offer the services in place today.
