Equine Testimonials

I have known Tim Bradford for about 4 years now and have worked with him on several different horses and also he treats me on a regular basis.

Tim always treats each horse individually with the utmost care and attention to detail. He always researches each horse's history and uses a variety of treatments to cater for their specific needs. He is always very good at explaining his techniques so we can continue with the best possible care for the horses.

I know from a personal opinion, that Tim is incredibly clever when dealing with humans too! He understands the strains of my job on my body and has always managed to sort out a variety of problems that I have gone to him with!

Mr Alan Davies - Travelling groom to Carl Hester MBE - Olympic Gold Medalist and International Dressage Champion.

Very valued team members of our production yard. We wouldn't have any of the results we've had if it wasn't for the guys at Bradfords.

Matt McGivern

When Tim Bradford arrived at our yard 7 years we were very keptical. We had been through several physiotherapists, none of whom in our humble opinion had 'cut the mustard'. Fast forward to 2015, Tim has worked on several of our World Champion horses and has definitely played a big part of their success. He has altered the way we think about our horses and how we work them. We have a more athletic, supple and sounder horse thanks to Bradford Physio and more importantly the ability to know the difference!

Monnington Morgans

I have used Bradfords Veterinary Physiotherapy since 2010 after referral from my vet. I have nothing but praise for the highly professional way both Tim and his fellow physios go about their work. We have a mix of dressage horses, retired eventers and ponies and all have been treated, according to their needs, keeping the competition horses in work and winning. I always have total confidence in their treatment and know I could not find better.
