Hannah set up Rider Focus Physiotherapy Ltd to combine her lifetime passion for riding & eventing with helping riders to achieve the best they can and recover from injury to get back in the saddle fast. Hannah has an impressive caseload of riders including Olympic Gold medalist, Charlotte Dujardin.
After graduating from the University of Hertfordshire in 2010, Hannah worked in the NHS for 2 years, before landing a private job as a specialist musculoskeletal physiotherapist with Reactivate Healthcare Ltd. Hannah has stayed with Reactivate for 6 years, working with acute and chronic sports injuries, pre and post-operative rehabilitation and within Hampshire's most prestigious private schools looking after paediatric sports injuries. Hannah continues to work with Reactivate Healthcare alongside Rider Focus Physio.
"After physio with Hannah I have less pain, feel more even and I can be more accurate with my aids" - Charlotte Dujardin, 2018
It was a natural progression to specialise even further towards treating and managing horse riders. After some inspiring work with Andy Thomas, the current USA team rider physio and having worked for many years with a variety of riders from different disciplines and levels, Hannah knew this was the route she wanted to pursue.
"As a rider, Hannah can immediately relate to issues that affect my riding which is a real help" - Maddy Taylor, 2018
While Hannah enjoys the challenge of treating elite athletes in all equestrian disciplines, she also understands how important being pain-free and balanced is for every equestrian, whatever their level. Improving comfort and performance for both horse and rider is so important so whether you hack at the weekend, hunt in the winter or compete every week, Hannah will be happy to help!
"Hannah was so positive after my injury & had me back walking in my first session"- Rosie Geaves, 2017
Hannah has competed in eventing to 2* & currently has 2 horses campaigning at 1* level. In-between riding & working, Hannah also helps to run a trampoline club, coaching all levels of gymnasts from pre-school to national level!
"Hannah found the root cause of the problem and as a rider herself, I felt she could really understand my issues!" - Katy Dziedzic, 2018
