Meet Clare Ellam

Founder of Lostford Rehabilitation

Hi, I'm Clare. I have been an equine therapist specialising in rehabilitation for the past 26 years and also a licensed racehorse trainer. Over the years the requirement for horses to come and stay with us for intensive and fully guided rehab has increased tenfold. We have gradually been developing the yard and premises to accommodate more clients.

My team and I work fully alongside your vet and we can take veterinary referrals. We pride ourselves on being able to provide the best facilities for rehabilitation, fitness training, box rest, controlled exercise, and holiday stays.

The horse's health, happiness, and well-being is the utmost priority for everyone at Lostford...

I’ve worked with Clare and her team since 2016. Clare has extensive knowledge and experience in the management of Sport Horses, both in their fitness and rehabilitation of injuries. Clare is also a very experienced chiropractor.


I’m so excited about the development of this truly unique facility, and very proud to be working with such a fantastic team. Soon to be home to the only commercial equine swimming pool in the North West!


The care and treatment provided to each horse at Lostford Equine Rehabilitation is beyond 5*. Here you can maximise your horse's potential with the most advanced therapies available and a truly personalised approach to rehabilitation.

I sent my mare for rehab with Clare. I couldn't be happier with the results! I got regular updates, pictures and was able to go and visit.Clare even went out of her way to help me get back on after losing my confidence. Clare and her team went above and beyond and I wouldn't use anyone else right now. I highl recommend Clare to anyone that needs to send their horse away for rehab.

Our horse had been lame for 6 months with a ligament injury and on continual box rest, stressed and anxious. We never thought he would return to normal work levels but then a chance bump into Clare changed everything.


He went for 3 weeks to Lostford Equine Rehabilitation yard and received all kinds of treatments, laser, Indiba, Theraplate, massage for his whole body stiff from box rest, and lots of TLC from Clare’s wonderful staff. They brought him back into work and progressed his exercise programme.


I would highly recommend Clare’s expertise and wealth of knowledge along with her great kindness and support to us. She kept us informed of his daily progress and videos. He is now home and doing well, a happy settled boy and looking great thanks to the Radiance Gold supplement by Clare Ellam, which he started at Clare’s, he will definitely continue with it.


We wish Clare every success with her future plans for the expansion of her facilities to include her swimming lane.
