Niki Matthews - Animal Osteopathy

I am enjoying wonderful balance in my career of both animal and human Osteopathy.

I am passionate about Osteopathy and teaching whether it be with my patients to help manage their treatment or with postural training for both horse and rider. Osteopathy is all about anatomy, and I believe the better understanding the owner, rider, trainer, has about the way these incredible animals work, can only benefit both parties. All horses will have conformation issues but enabling them to work within the realms of their natural biomechanics will help to produce good posture. Recognising the changes that can be made vs. the support of conformation is imperative to improve well being and help prevent injury.

Your horse & your posture!

Pregnancy and posture advice at The Centre of Osteopathy and Complementary Health
Niki is fascinated about how the riders posture affects the horses, and the biomechanics of both horse and rider.
Understanding why some horses function better with one rider than another has become a passion of her’s. The riders posture has a huge affect on the horse posture and influencing their way of going.
