Lynda Swindells graduated from the Equissage Europe certification course in equine Sports massage therapy with flying colours. Her background knowledge of horses and her intense desire to do the best she possibly can for all equines really shone through. Lynda was an outstanding pupil, easily mastering the massage sequence but also excelling in her study of anatomy.
She has a natural empathy with animals but also an ability to communicate with clients that will make her easy to approach and to discuss any problem you may be experiencing with your horse or pony. She has great maturity, common sense and an excellent sense of humour
Lynda has a wide knowledge base of many types of equine participation including riding and driving and is an expert on competition horses & native breed ponies.
I would thoroughly recommend her to treat your horse or pony!

My horse Topper had been off work for 8 months due to a serious injury, 6 of those were spent on box rest so he had a fair bit of muscle wastage. Lynda came to massage him on Saturday and was extremely friendly and professional, she pointed out some 'tight' spots and worked extra hard on those areas. Topper seeemed to find this very relaxing and although I haven't been able to ride him yet he certainly seemed very relaxed and supple the next day. I shall certainly be asking Lynda to visit again once he is back in full work.

Bo is always very tense and tight in front and takes quite a bit of time to warm up and relax into her work, but after her massage she felt much looser and freer in front and behind and overall more supple. I will definitely be asking Lynda to come back for further treatments.

Lynda came to see my horse Marmite who has been out of work and will be returning to work soon.
I found Lynda to be professional and really friendly and she was very good at explaining and answering my questions.Lynda gave me good advice for Marmites day to day management, thus benefiting his condition.
Marmite really enjoyed his massage and became really relaxed. Lynda did find some tight spots and worked on these areas. I found Marmite the next day was overall more supple and less tense in the back and generally more happy in himself. I have asked Lynda to come back and take a look at my daughters pony Barry in the next few weeks.

In just one visit Lynda has given me back my Boy! It was fascinating to watch her work and the transformation in him is wonderful. The relief I feel at his release from pain, I’ve been treated as well! Equine Sports Massage Therapy is essential care for your Horse. Thank you Lynda!

Lynda has really changed the way that I look at my horse. Like many owner riders, I always used to think that ailments were more 'isolated issues', but through the medium of Equine Sports Massage, she has shown me the importance of viewing the horse as a whole. Intially, I was skeptical but I was proven wrong.
Lynda has shown me the value in addressing acute issues before they become chronic issues. I would recommend this therapy 100%!!
She's methodical and open to answering any queries I had (and I had A LOT!) plus she's very thorough. I always assumed that a back problem required a physio, but, after experiencing how dramatic the results of massage can be on my ex racehorses, who often have lots of muscular issues when they come to me, I now firmly believe that most issues can be resolved using ESMT.
My horses are happy and sound, what more could I ask for? 10 out of 10!"
