Pippa Winkworth started horse riding at 4 years old. From a young age she was drawn to difficult ponies which developed into a professional career as a horse trainer, having gained valuable experience with Jane Edwards (British Endurance Team and dressage rider. Pippa successfully trained horses from starting to advance level in Dressage & Eventing.
However, Pippa was still drawn to the difficult horses with 'behavioural' problems. She realised that many cases had underlying pain which were manifesting as behavioural issues. This led her to Ken Skinner in 2001, a veterinary chiropractor based in Norfolk. After working as a chiropractic assistant with Ken, in 2006 she gained qualifications as a Veterinary Therapist & graduated from European School of Animal Osteopathy (ESAO) in 2009 & gained an MSc in Veterinary Physiotherapy at Harper Adams University. This gives Pippa a very unique approach to resolving issues, rehabilitation & improving performance.

Pippa has worked with elite performance horses in Dressage, Eventing and Racing alongside some of the UK’s leading veterinary specialists.
