Rehabilitation & Fitness
Here at Willowsway Stud & Rehabilitation we offer a variety of different rehabilitation and fitness packages to suit a range of requirements. When it comes to rehabilitation we understand that not every horse is the same, and each horse will need to take a different approach to aid its recovery. Thats why we also offer bespoke packages that can be tailored to suit the needs of each individual client and their horse. Working alongside our onsite Osteopath and Physiotherapist and your Veterinary practitioner we alway aim to bring you a 5* service and provide your horse with the very best care.
