The Meadowbrook Story
Experienced. Professional. Supportive.
Meadowbrook was established in 2014 by Sarah Davenport, initially offering sports massage treatments, thermal imaging and class 3b laser therapy to a large equine client base in the Midlands. 2016 saw the addition of a Derbyshire based 15 box rehabilitation yard to Meadowbrook, catering primarily for racehorses. In 2020 Cheshire based Alison Greg joined the team as an equine therapist, bringing over 30 years of experience to the business, Alison also heads up the Academy as our Principle Tutor.
We are a small but very supportive team, we deliver our courses in a way that helps you to really understand equine anatomy. Anyone can pick up a text book and learn the location of the muscles "parrot fashion", but that's not us. We view the horse in a holistic way so that we can help you to really improve a horses way of going, by understanding the connections of the entire system.
