About Bellscross Veterinary Physiotherapy

Run by Gina Rickard

(BSc Hons Veterinary Physiotherapy)

Bellscross Veterinary Physiotherapy is a Surrey/ Hampshire based practice providing veterinary physiotherapy, riding & training services to clients in the South East UK & beyond. From maintenance treatments for top competition horses to the happy hacker undergoing rehabilitation, all can be catered for and are cared for equally.

Rehabilitating my first horse, Bellscross Johny, after a deep forelimb injury, started my journey towards becoming a veterinary physiotherapist. Since then, working with international dressage horses, managing my own competition horse & working with top veterinary professionals in Europe, allowed me to gain further insight into the importance of both prehabilitation & rehabilitation.

My passion for all things equine health and performance, as well as owner education, has lead to the creation of Bellscross Veterinary Physiotherapy.

My four years studying at Harper, including my placement year which included spending time at a top equine orthopaedic hospital in Germany, provided me with the toolkit of evidence based methods to give the best treatment possible.
