• I called Nikki out because one of our new ponies came over from Argentina with a back problem. Nikki treated her with massage and long-wave ultrasound and gave me some exercises to do with her at home. Her back improved enormously – she was much happier under saddle and played to the end of the season. I will certainly be calling Nikki out again to check our horses before next year’s season starts, and she’ll be a regular visitor throughout the summer!

Sponsored Riders

Christine Pattle

Bach Vet Physio is very proud to sponsor talented dressage rider, Christine Pattle. Christine has completed successfully at Advanced Medium level. Her current horses in competition are Icon Zander and Baby Flute.

Zander has started at Medium level this year. His highlight this year has been competing in the Elementary Petplan Finals at the British Dressage Winter Championships. He hasn't been out much this summer as he became slightly anaemic but we're now going full steam ahead and looking forward to next year.

Flute has only started at Novice level this year and is just beginning to pick up some good scores.

Both horses are home bred and are 3/4 brother and sister. They're both very talented, but aren't very much alike, except that they both like eating! We have to watch their waistlines.

They work quite hard at home, especially Zander, who is doing lots of lateral work. Working with Nikki allows them to remain supple and injury free, with regular physio sessions and plenty of advice on exercises for them to do in between visits to maintain their physical wellbeing. Nikki is a crucial part of our team!
