Head of Practice Tim Bradford treated Spencer Wilton’s horse, Super Nova II, before the Games in North Carolina, USA

Specialist equine physiotherapy practice Bradford’s Veterinary Physiotherapy is celebrating after helping one of the stars of British dressage scoop a bronze medal at the World Equestrian Games.

Thanks to Tim’s years of veterinary physio experience, the Spencer Wilton and his horse Super Nova II were able to travel to Tryon to compete against the world’s top dressage riders.

Olympic rider Spencer and Super Nova II, known as Neville at home, helped win a coveted bronze medal for the British team.

With him on the podium were Gloucestershire riders Carl Hester and Charlotte Dujardin, who are based at the Oaklebrook Mill yard in Newent, and Emile Faure.

Spencer scored an impressive 74.581% in the test to kick-start the team to glory.

Tim, who is based at Bradford’s HQ near Ledbury, Herefordshire, and treats horses and riders across Gloucestershire and the Cotswolds, said: “We couldn’t be more delighted for Spenny and Neville.

“The World Equestrian Games are the culmination of months of hard work, and the bronze was so well-deserved.

“Bradford’s has the edge over traditional veterinary physio practices because we’re highly-trained, highly-experienced Chartered Physiotherapists and we specialise in both equine and human treatments, meaning we can ensure both horse and rider are in peak condition.

“Our client base reaches right across the UK and we’re proud to be involved with some of the most elite British riders and their horses.”

Bradford’s was set up eleven years ago by Tim and his wife Rhiannon, who spent years practicing in the NHS and in private practice before they set up on their own. Now, the firm offers specialist physiotherapy services across the human, equine and canine spectrum - often solving issues that patients have been living with for years. Tim, Rhiannon and their staff work closely with Hartpury University, arranging clinical placements for Chartered Veterinary Physiotherapy Masters students. Referrals come from the some of the regions most highly-respected vets.

“We’re at the forefront of veterinary medicine,” said Rhiannon.

“The techniques we used are based around physiotherapy principles and we’re lucky enough to work with something like 250 of the top vets in the country.

“We problem-solve at the highest level.”

Bradford’s experts travel to yards across the country to treat horse and rider, and also hold regular clinics in Tewkesbury and Malvern.
