The Equine Therapy Centre
The Equine Therapy Centre offers treatment and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal conditions using a combination of the most up to date facilities, physical therapy and techniques in veterinary medicine. Since 1999, the Centre has helped thousands of horses achieve their full potential whatever their role in life. Dressage world record holder, Charlotte Dujardin’s wonderhorse, Valegro, even visits the Centre several times a month!

There is a separate treatment box where electrotherapy and Zamar treatment is carried out, weighbridge, solarium, indoor and outdoor Andrews Bowen waxed arenas*, off-road training track, Monarch horse walker and restricted turnout pens.
The Equine Therapy Centre offers a superb learning environment for students, allowing them to gain real world experience or undertake a work placement for those students requiring it as part of their course. The Centre also runs a ‘Demo Horse Scheme’ where the Centre involves Hartpury student and staff horses in research projects, in return for exercising them on either or both of our treadmills for free* (initial sedation charge will apply for exercise on the Aquafit treadmill).
