As a follow on from eventing with her previous horse, Gillian now competes in Affiliated Dressage at Medium level with her horse Topsy - see picture to right.
"I qualified as a Sports Massage Therapist to treat people and came to the simple conclusion that if we feel pain and stiff through exercise and posture, horses must feel it too. They are just as athletic as us; if not more and have muscles which equally cause them as much discomfort. If we prepare our bodies for work using massage and alternative therapies, why shouldn't the same be done for them? I want to be able to help them in return for all the work they do for us."
