Sue Palmer working on a chestnut horse giving it a massage
Sue Palmer is probably the best Physio in the world!! My horse's performance continues to amaze me every time she treats him. I have regular sessions for both myself and my horse every 6 weeks and I would now say that it is an essential part of my horse's routine and keeps him working at Grand Prix with ease! Thank you Sue!!!
