Welcome to Samsara Equitation Equine Rehab Centre

"...The horse [Flame] is again able to enjoy ridden work, thanks to the professional rehabilitation programme and his dedicated owner." Ralph Hege, DVM MRCVS, Galley Hill Equine Surgery 

At Samsara we offer a unique therapy program aimed at treating root causes of pain, poor performance, lameness and behavioural issues in horses of all types including remedial horses. At the centre of our program is a unique muscle therapy with a proven track record of fixing horses that others couldn’t or had given up on. Our customer feedback is testimony to that. We believe horses want to work for us and if they won’t it is because they are trying to tell us that something is wrong. We help you find out what, fix it and then work with you to keep it that way.

  • Are you at the end of your tether?
  • Has everyone given up except you?
  • Do you believe that the problems your horse are experiencing are solvable if only you could find the right person?
  • Are you tired of having your problem 'solved' only to find it isn't?
  • Have you simply run out of money and don't know where to turn?
  • Well, you have come to the right place. We won't spin you stories. If we can help we will and if we can't we'll tell you who can if anyone.

"On my last visit to Mrs Emily Baker near Oxford I had the opportunity to get to know the equine rehab work of Stephen Goodridge. He had taken a horse with severe, extensive issues and turned it into a normal riding horse. Many thanks for the good work." Dr Gerd Heuschmann, Vet, Classical rider and trainer.

 Our philosophy is to always view the horse as a whole whatever the symptoms and that early diagnosis and prevention is far better than curing.  Many problems that horses have including behavioural problems can be traced back to unresolved muscular pain.

"I have the greatest respect for Samsara and their work and I am convinced that their kind of work with the horses is a great addition to horse medicine." Dr. med. vet. Werner Jahn, Chief Vet, Bargteheide Horse Clinic

All issues are inter-related. You cannot dissociate nutrition from health, from poor performance or wellbeing. Our aim is to provide our horses with the best possible foundation so that problems do not arise in the first place.

"The more severely cramped the muscles that flex the joints in a limb, the more severe the strain on ligaments and tendons." Pauli Groenberg, ABC of the Horse Atlas, 2011.

If you have a horse which is under-performing or who is permanently lame or who you know has muscular or other soft-tissue problems which are not being resolved by rest or drugs then give us a call and we'll see what we can do to help. What you can be certain of is that we will give you a full assessment of the whole horse and only recommend those treatments or solutions which are necessary even if that means we don't get any work! For us the horse is key. Call us on +44 7794 935590.
