Clare Ellam & Lostford Equine Rehabilitation

My boy had a serious field accident where he got impaled on a gate. The vet performed field surgery and was told that the main muscle was cut straight through. I was completely devastated. After 3 weeks of box rest, we were able to move him, he went straight up to team Ellam. Clare put him on the Indiba machine with had some extremely high readings. I knew this was going to take a long time, will he ever be able to compete at Endurance again? The sports needs horses to be 100% in every way to do the distance at speed and pass the vet checks. I just knew I had to give this gorgeous clever boy the best chance, he was too young to retire and absolutely loves his work. He had muscle atrophy and nerve damage and was left with a huge scar. I was traumatised by the whole incident, I didn’t want him to leave, but I needed to give him the best chance possible. Clare and the team were amazing, I had daily updates reducing my need to be with him and just knew I made the right decision. he was in great hands and I could see good progress even in a short period of time. I became hopeful, would this beautiful boy not be a happy hacker and do what he loves. As I’m writing this we are training for our Endurance Competition, something I never thought would be possible.

Thank you Forever grateful Rachel and Kai

I would highly recommend Clare and her team. They did such an amazing job with Bobby on his rehabilitation I just can't thank them enough Bobby came back so much happier and stronger he was a completely different horse the care he received was second to none nothing was too much trouble I am an extremely fussy owner especially were Bobby is concerned 10* service and treatment  Bobby was so chilled throughout his stay I wouldn't hesitate to send him again thank you all so much.
