We have received a first class service and are finding a noticeable improvement in our horses way of going. We are continuing with a range of exercises suggested by Michelle and are seeing a week on week improvement in Fletchers suppleness.
Tom is a 17 years old 17.2hh warmblood retired BSJA showjumper. He’s had a few falls and sprains while competing and at home. He was frequently lame but no one could put their finger on his problem. Michelle carried out a course of therapy and Tom has been fine ever since. She is knowledgeable, confident and practical – I have no reservations in recommending Cheshire Equine Therapy
Cheshire Equine Therapy was formed in 2009 by Michelle Woolrich (nee Cheers). Michelle has a BSc (Hons) in Equine Science from the University of the West of England Hartpury College, which was where she also began her BHS training. She is a qualified Equine Body Worker (EEBW), and has a diploma in McTimoney animal manipulation, spinal therapy, and is a kinesio taping equine KT2 practitioner.
She is committed to continuing her professional development to broaden her knowledge to be able to effectively educate others with the most relevant up to date information, research and insights, and to be able to offer a wider range of treatments and therapies to her clients for the benefit of their animals.
Being qualified and highly experienced in a range of therapies enables her to tailor treatments specifically to your animal for greater benefit and improved outcome. She uses a range of manipulation and adjustment techniques, sports massage techniques, bodywork, natural horsemanship, riding and training techniques, active and passive exercises and stretching, magnotherapy, pressure point therapy, kinaesthetic taping and accupressure.
Michelle is a UKCC level 2 coach accredited by the BEF and ABRS, has BTEC level 4 in FE teaching and leaning, is first aid and child safeguarding trained, with enhanced CRB disclosure, and is a BHS registered instructor.
In 2012 Michelle decided she wanted to transfer her equine skills for the benefit of other animals, so she trained in animal anatomy and physiology too. The other animals that she mainly treats are dogs and cats, but she has also had excellent results on other species such as bulls, goats, and donkey’s.
