“I can highly recommend Bridget when your horse requires physio. I have known Bridget very many years and her expertise was backed up by my vets recommendation to use her. She is very professional in her treatments, providing you with good feedback, and making sure you know what you are doing with the exercises she leaves you to do afterwards. Bridget liaises promptly and thoroughly with the vet helping formulate a treatment plan. She has helped me with a young horse whose musculature has changed constantly since he was backed a year ago and he is now thoroughly enjoying his continuing education. Highly recommended!"
“Bridget has been looking after my horses for years and is incredibly knowledgeable whether that’s regarding rehab after an injury or general maintenance. I know that I can be confident that my horses are in great hands and when it comes to making a performance difference I can definitely recommend!”
“ I have been using Bridget since she started training to be a physiotherapist on both my horses and a pelvic issue I suffer from.
Bridget is a key asset to my horse's wellbeing and yearly care programme. She is personable, professional and works in the parameters of my horse's needs and the disciplines I do.
My horse Lynke is a 15.1 Friesian who I hack, school and do low key competitions with at prelim level. She does suffer from lack of muscle in her quarters and in the past suffered from intermittent lameness in her hind quarter as a result of this. Since Bridget met and started treating her, she gave us manageable exercises to do and suggested a saddle check as well- showing she looks at the bigger picture and the results speak for themselves!
I now enjoy riding a happy and confident mare who is working better from behind.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Bridget on either horse or human! ”
“Bridget has been treating both myself and my horses since she qualified in 2005 and 2011 respectively. She is very skilled and professional in her approach; dealing with both acute problems and routine maintenance. With her sympathetic approach, helpful advice and support I and my horse continue to compete; long may it continue.
“Huge thanks to Bridget Bazell for keeping me and 3 endurance horses on the road and in fine fettle. Seren Capella had her best year ever at the age of 16, becoming Cromwell Advanced High Points Winner and Pure Bred Arab winner, with her (almost) full brother, Seren Rigek, taking reserve in both categories. I was delighted to also win the Champion Senior Rider Trophy. 2016 also saw Capewell Winged Firestar win Reserve National Champion Senior Mare at the Crabbet National Championships. This is more than we could have ever imagined possible and we’re so grateful to Bridget for her gentleness, diligence and hard work. It’s no mean feat supporting 3 endurance horses and their rider! ”
