Meet the Team

Dedicated and knowledgable professionals


Hannah Gadsden


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. 

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. Hannah is often out and about at shows and events providing pre-competition physio and helping riders perform at their best when it counts!

Liz McGoun


Liz has worked around Hampshire and Surrey for over 27 years as a saddle fitter with the Society of Master Saddlers and as an Animal Physiotherapist. More recently Liz has branched out to complete her human Osteopathy training and is now enjoying working with riders as well as their horses! Liz has a kind and sympathetic manor and is excellent with hands on manual therapy, manipulations and helping alleviate both acute pain and more chronic, persistent issues.  

With her wealth of experience in the equestrian industry, we are really excited to have Liz on board. 


Holly Stuart


Holly qualified as a Human Physiotherapist in 2017 and since then has worked both for the NHS and in private settings, including time with Portsmouth Rugby Club, providing her with insight and specialist knowledge into the demands of human athletes. 

Holly is also an ACPAT Veterinary physiotherapist and splits her time between human clients and horses, while also doing a day a week for the Super Vet, Fitzpatrick Referrals. 

Holly is an enthusiastic and motivational physiotherapist and with her excellent diagnostic skills, manual therapy techniques and evidenced based rehabilitation, will have you back on track and in the saddle riding pain free in no time!  

Ali Hinchcliffe

Admin Manager & APPI Pilates Instructor

Ali keeps the business running smoothly, dealing with enquiries, bookings, diary management and invoicing. We really couldn’t manage with out her! 

Along side keeping the practitioners organised and the patients happy, Ali also runs our Pilates program, teaching 121 private sessions and classes for both Riders and the general public. Having spent most of her life working with horses, Ali has decided it’s time for a more inside job! No one understands the demands on the body of working with horses and riding more that Ali! Her Pilates classes are energetic, fun and are sure to take your riding to the next level!
