-We see enough horses' hooves

-in this series...

0:00:190:00:23

-..but this time, we focus on hands.

0:00:230:00:25

-They belong to a man and a woman

-who are friends of the horse.

0:00:260:00:30

-As the old Welsh saying goes,

-a good friend is as good as a horse.

0:00:300:00:35

-The horse is a powerful

-and muscular animal.

0:00:350:00:39

-Often, its bones and muscles

-are weakened and injured.

0:00:390:00:44

-Equine care is all-important...

0:00:440:00:47

-..and the horses in this episode

-get the best possible care.

0:00:480:00:52

-Relaxation, massage and recovery.

0:00:520:00:56

-We'll see

-several horses this time...

0:00:560:01:00

-..including one champion

-that's worth a fortune.

0:01:000:01:04

-First, I meet equine physiotherapist

-Philippa James...

-

-https://www.facebook.com/Philippa-James-Equine-Physiotherapist-179973765391804/

0:01:430:01:47

-..from the Sianwood Stud

-near Llandovery.

-

-http://wpcs.uk.com/index.php/stud_directory/search_stud/

0:01:470:01:50

-She now helps some of England's

-best and fastest racehorses.

0:01:510:01:55

-Philippa James

-grew up near Llandovery...

0:01:580:02:01

-..in a family of true horse lovers.

0:02:010:02:04

-The Sianwood Stud is best-known

-for its Section B horses.

0:02:040:02:08

-Philippa now lives and works

-near Lambourn.

-

-http://www.lambourn.info/open-day/

0:02:100:02:13

-She also competes occasionally,

-and often pops back to Wales.

0:02:130:02:17

-From where

-does your interest in horses come?

0:02:210:02:24

-From my parents, I think.

0:02:240:02:26

-Horses have been a very important

-part of my life since I was young.

0:02:260:02:32

-Did you always

-want to work with horses?

0:02:330:02:37

-Yes.

0:02:370:02:38

-When I was small,

-I wanted to be a vet.

0:02:390:02:42

-But I wasn't bright enough at school

-to get an A in Chemistry.

0:02:420:02:47

-I had to come up with another plan.

0:02:470:02:52

-But it was always going to be

-something with horses.

0:02:520:02:56

-How did you get into physiotherapy?

0:02:560:03:00

-Well, let's begin at the beginning.

0:03:000:03:03

-I went to university in Bristol...

0:03:030:03:07

-..and I followed

-a veterinary nursing course...

0:03:070:03:12

-..for four years.

0:03:120:03:14

-I came to work with racehorses...

0:03:150:03:18

-..at Kingwood Stud in Lambourn.

-

-http://www.kingwoodstud.com/

0:03:180:03:21

-A physio came to the yard

-once a week.

0:03:230:03:28

-I liked what she did.

0:03:280:03:30

-I decided

-that's what I wanted to do.

0:03:300:03:34

-That's it.

0:03:360:03:37

-Why have you based yourself

-in Lambourn?

0:03:390:03:42

-It's a centre for racehorses...

0:03:430:03:46

-..so there are hundreds of horses

-on my doorstep, basically.

0:03:460:03:52

-I don't have to travel

-too far for work.

0:03:530:03:58

-..and I have a lot of clients

-in the same place.

0:03:590:04:05

-What does

-an equine physiotherapist do?

0:04:110:04:14

-I work with horses

-to improve their performance.

0:04:140:04:19

-When I see a new horse...

0:04:200:04:22

-..I watch it walking up

-and I watch it standing.

0:04:230:04:26

-I check for a difference

-between the two sides.

0:04:270:04:30

-I look at the feet, the gait...

0:04:310:04:33

-..and then watch it standing.

0:04:330:04:37

-I'll then give it a massage

-and find out where it's tense...

0:04:380:04:43

-..or where it's a bit sore.

0:04:440:04:46

-I'll then talk to the owner...

0:04:470:04:51

-..to discuss

-any problems they've seen.

0:04:510:04:54

-What are the reasons a horse

-might need physiotherapy?

0:04:550:04:59

-I work with racehorses.

0:05:000:05:03

-At the end of the day,

-they're athletes.

0:05:030:05:08

-They need help,

-just as a human athlete would.

0:05:080:05:12

-They can be tight after a race,

-or if they have fallen, perhaps.

0:05:130:05:17

-Or they might have an injury...

0:05:170:05:21

-..and need to be rehabilitated

-back to full health.

0:05:210:05:26

-What kind of treatment

-can you offer?

0:05:260:05:29

-I do massage

-and I have a TENS machine.

-

-http://www.centralequinephysio.co.uk/tens-machine.html

0:05:300:05:35

-Ultrasound.

0:05:350:05:37

-A magnetic pulse boot.

-

-http://www.centurion-systems.co.uk/MagPulseTherapy.htm

0:05:370:05:40

-The machine I use

-depends on the injury.

0:05:400:05:45

-Do you have a treatment

-that you enjoy more than others?

0:05:450:05:49

-I really like the TENS machine.

0:05:510:05:53

-You can see it making a difference

-at the time.

0:05:530:05:57

-One of Philippa's main clients

-are the Bradstock family.

0:06:040:06:08

-They are well-known trainers

-in the racing world.

0:06:080:06:12

-The champion Coneygree

-is in their stable.

-

-http://www.markbradstockracing.co.uk/blog/

0:06:120:06:15

-But Philippa's first customer

-is a novice racehorse...

0:06:170:06:22

-..which needs some help

-from a specialist machine.

0:06:220:06:25

-Who do we have here?

0:06:280:06:29

-This is Rory.

0:06:290:06:31

-He's a four-year-old.

0:06:310:06:33

-He's recovering

-from an injury to his hind leg.

0:06:330:06:39

-What will you do with Rory today?

0:06:390:06:41

-He's lost a bit of muscle

-at the top of the right hind.

0:06:410:06:47

-I'll be using the TENS machine

-to try to build it back up.

0:06:470:06:51

-Let's see how the machine works.

0:06:510:06:53

-Let's see how the machine works.

-

-Yes, certainly.

0:06:530:06:54

-What's the gel you're applying?

0:07:000:07:02

-It's just lubrication

-for the pads of the TENS machine.

0:07:020:07:06

-It makes it more sticky.

0:07:070:07:09

-How exactly

-does the TENS machine work?

0:07:090:07:13

-It works on a specific area.

0:07:130:07:17

-In this case, it's the glutes.

0:07:170:07:19

-We just want to work

-this particular muscle group.

0:07:190:07:25

-Have you seen an improvement

-since starting the treatment?

0:07:250:07:29

-Yes.

0:07:290:07:30

-When I started, I had to have it

-on quite a high level...

0:07:310:07:35

-..in order to arouse the muscles.

0:07:350:07:37

-Now, I've been able to turn it down

-to level five out of ten.

0:07:380:07:42

-That means the muscles are

-reacting better to the treatment.

0:07:420:07:47

-Is it painful for the horse at all?

0:07:470:07:50

-Is it painful for the horse at all?

-

-No, it isn't.

0:07:500:07:51

-I've tried it out on myself!

0:07:520:07:53

-I could try it on you.

0:07:540:07:55

-I could try it on you.

-

-Later, maybe!

0:07:550:07:57

-On my belly, to try to shrink it.

0:07:570:07:59

-That would be best.

0:07:590:08:01

-Yes, we can try.

0:08:010:08:02

-The champion Coneygree

-is next on Philippa's list.

0:08:060:08:09

-He's a famous horse now,

-and quite a character.

0:08:100:08:13

-Coneygree is a very famous horse.

0:08:150:08:17

-Tell us about him.

0:08:170:08:18

-He won the Cheltenham Gold Cup

-two years ago.

0:08:190:08:25

-He has now recovered

-after being injured...

0:08:250:08:29

-..and he's back in training.

0:08:300:08:33

-What was wrong with Coneygree?

0:08:330:08:36

-Why are you treating him?

0:08:360:08:38

-He's on the way back...

0:08:380:08:41

-..after suffering two fractures

-in his hocks last year.

0:08:410:08:46

-He's on the road to recovery.

0:08:460:08:50

-I start with the neck,

-down to the chest here.

0:08:510:08:54

-The shoulders.

0:08:550:08:56

-Then, the most important place

-for him is his back.

0:08:560:09:02

-Is it nice

-to see the recovery process...

0:09:050:09:09

-..from him being injured

-to being almost fit to race?

0:09:100:09:13

-He had got a bit fat,

-but now he's superfit.

0:09:140:09:18

-He's ready.

0:09:180:09:20

-What kind of a personality

-does Coneygree have?

0:09:210:09:24

-Well, he can be a bit grumpy.

0:09:240:09:27

-But when he is grumpy,

-we know he's OK.

0:09:280:09:31

-He does have a strong personality.

0:09:310:09:35

-He can be a bit tight here.

0:09:360:09:40

-That has a knock-on effect

-down through his hind quarters...

0:09:400:09:45

-..and down the legs.

0:09:460:09:47

-We want to take the stress

-and the tension...

0:09:480:09:52

-..off his legs.

0:09:530:09:54

-Were you treating Coneygree

-before he got injured?

0:09:550:09:59

-Yes, I've been treating him

-for the three years I've been here.

0:09:590:10:03

-I was with him when he won

-the Cheltenham Gold Cup.

0:10:030:10:06

-I went to see him racing that day.

0:10:070:10:11

-What was that like?

0:10:120:10:13

-It was just amazing.

0:10:130:10:15

-The best race in the world,

-and it was just brilliant.

0:10:150:10:18

-What are the plans for Coneygree?

-Does he have races coming up?

0:10:180:10:22

-Yes.

0:10:230:10:24

-The plan now is to take him

-to Punchestown in Ireland...

-

-https://www.punchestown.com/

0:10:240:10:30

-..in April.

0:10:300:10:31

-He'll have one prep run before that.

0:10:310:10:34

-Are you part of the team

-preparing Coneygree for racing?

0:10:350:10:39

-Yes. I'll see him more often

-in the run-up to the race.

0:10:390:10:42

-Hopefully, I'll see him

-running in Ireland.

0:10:430:10:47

-And hopefully winning.

0:10:470:10:48

-And hopefully winning.

-

-Yes, hopefully.

0:10:480:10:50

-Why is Coneygree

-such a special horse?

0:10:510:10:55

-He's a famous name

-in the racing world.

0:10:550:10:58

-He's probably in the top five

-best horses in the country.

0:10:580:11:03

-It's very exciting to see if he can

-come back to his best this year.

0:11:040:11:09

-It's not every day...

0:11:100:11:12

-..that I can say I'm treating

-a Cheltenham Gold Cup winner...

0:11:120:11:16

-..and a potential two-time winner.

-We now join the Bowen therapist,

-Andrew Phillips.

0:11:400:11:43

-He's in the business of curing

-horses in Ceredigion and beyond.

0:11:440:11:48

-Bowen therapist Andrew Phillips's

-home is called Stafell.

0:11:540:11:59

-His family have lived here,

-near Llandysul, since the 1950s.

0:12:000:12:04

-Andrew is a keen competitor

-and judge in the equine world.

0:12:040:12:08

-Bowen therapy

-is a holistic treatment.

0:12:120:12:15

-It was developed by Thomas Bowen

-in Australia during the 1950s.

0:12:150:12:20

-Bowen draws on

-oriental medical philosophy...

0:12:230:12:26

-..and has been adapted to treat

-humans and horses in the West.

0:12:270:12:32

-How did you get into this field?

0:12:350:12:38

-To be honest,

-I suffered a fall...

0:12:390:12:43

-..and injured my neck and shoulder.

0:12:430:12:46

-For about 18 months or so,

-I couldn't move my arm.

0:12:470:12:52

-It was just luck.

0:12:530:12:56

-Somebody said, "Why don't you try

-the Bowen technique?"

0:12:570:13:01

-Previously,

-I couldn't lift this arm.

0:13:010:13:04

-But after one treatment,

-I could get my arm up to here.

0:13:040:13:08

-I knew straight away

-that this would help me.

0:13:090:13:13

-And that's how I started.

0:13:130:13:18

-I found it to be beneficial.

0:13:180:13:20

-After that, I decided to train.

0:13:210:13:23

-What kind of training did you need?

0:13:230:13:26

-Well, the college's stipulation...

0:13:260:13:30

-..was that I had to be

-a qualified human therapist...

0:13:300:13:36

-..before I could treat a horse

-or a dog and so on.

0:13:360:13:41

-So, I spent a year going back

-and forth to Glastonbury...

0:13:410:13:47

-..doing the human course.

0:13:470:13:51

-Afterwards, I started

-at Hartpury in Gloucestershire...

-

-http://www.hartpury.ac.uk/

0:13:510:13:56

-..on the equine course.

0:13:560:14:00

-On that course,

-I had to do anatomy, physiology...

0:14:020:14:06

-..equine ailments...

0:14:070:14:10

-..the hooves...

0:14:100:14:13

-..respiratory systems...

0:14:130:14:15

-..and the circulatory system.

0:14:160:14:18

-There was a vet on hand

-making sure we did everything right.

0:14:180:14:23

-It was very, very thorough.

0:14:230:14:26

-Stallion Bart

-is Andrew's first customer...

0:14:380:14:42

-..at the Blaenllain Stud

-near Cilcennin.

-

-http://blaenllainstud.co.uk/contact-us/

0:14:420:14:45

-He's not injured,

-but he has an important job.

0:14:450:14:48

-So, what will you be doing

-with Bart today?

0:14:560:14:59

-We're going to be carrying out

-Bowen therapy with him.

0:14:590:15:04

-There's nothing wrong

-with the horse at all.

0:15:050:15:08

-But they collect AI insemination

-from Bart.

0:15:080:15:11

-At this time of year,

-they get me to work on the horse...

0:15:120:15:16

-..to make sure

-that the back and loin muscles...

0:15:170:15:22

-..are supple enough...

0:15:220:15:24

-..because he has to mount a dummy.

0:15:250:15:28

-That's what it is.

0:15:280:15:30

-A mare can move, to take the impact.

0:15:310:15:35

-But when he mounts the dummy...

0:15:350:15:39

-..nothing moves.

0:15:390:15:43

-It's important

-that the stallion's muscles...

0:15:430:15:46

-..are supple enough for him not

-to be injured during the process.

0:15:460:15:51

-Andrew, where do we start on Bart?

0:15:530:15:55

-I'm going to start on the back.

0:15:560:15:59

-I'll go in here...

0:16:010:16:03

-This is how I do it.

0:16:030:16:04

-I press on the muscle,

-which you can see there.

0:16:040:16:07

-I apply pressure,

-and then roll over it.

0:16:070:16:12

-I then move down.

0:16:120:16:15

-I press this point here.

0:16:150:16:17

-Then I apply pressure

-and roll over the muscle.

0:16:200:16:25

-So, the rolling technique

-is the same every time.

0:16:250:16:29

-Yes.

0:16:290:16:30

-What I'm trying to do

-is to get the roll...

0:16:300:16:35

-..to disturb

-the way the muscle works.

0:16:350:16:39

-It's difficult to say

-exactly how it works...

0:16:410:16:44

-..but that's what this therapy does.

0:16:440:16:48

-I realign the horse's muscles...

0:16:480:16:52

-..and the soft tissue...

0:16:530:16:54

-..and I stimulate...

0:16:550:16:58

-..the circulation of the blood

-and the lymphatic systems and so on.

0:16:580:17:03

-So, if there's a blockage

-in the system...

0:17:030:17:07

-..it helps the horse

-to work better...

0:17:080:17:11

-..after having the treatment.

0:17:120:17:14

-What are we doing now, Andrew?

0:17:160:17:17

-What I want to do now...

0:17:180:17:20

-..is to release the top, the sacrum.

0:17:200:17:23

-I'm going to apply pressure here.

0:17:230:17:26

-You can see, it went down there.

0:17:260:17:29

-I heard a click as well.

0:17:290:17:30

-I heard a click as well.

-

-Yes.

0:17:300:17:31

-So, that has been released.

0:17:310:17:33

-Just two small moves...

0:17:350:17:37

-..and you can see

-the rear quarter moving.

0:17:390:17:42

-Bart's reacting to it.

0:17:420:17:43

-Bart's reacting to it.

-

-That's right.

0:17:430:17:44

-Maybe you could...

0:17:450:17:47

-Hold the tail?

0:17:480:17:49

-Hold the tail?

-

-For a minute.

0:17:490:17:50

-This isn't Bowen,

-this is Mr Phillips!

0:17:510:17:56

-I use a technique...

0:17:570:17:59

-..to apply a little pressure

-to this large muscle.

0:18:000:18:05

-You can see

-that the muscle is now loose.

0:18:050:18:10

-You clearly enjoy your job, Andrew.

0:18:130:18:16

-Oh, I do enjoy the job.

0:18:170:18:19

-I see different types of horse

-every day.

0:18:190:18:22

-I'll work on anything

-from Shetlands up to shires.

0:18:220:18:27

-That's the type of pony I enjoy.

0:18:270:18:30

-This size.

0:18:310:18:32

-Not too big, not too small.

0:18:320:18:34

-I enjoy doing the work.

0:18:360:18:39

-That's what it is. I only work

-on three or four horses a day.

0:18:400:18:44

-It's enough for me,

-and I do the job right.

0:18:440:18:48

-Our next stop is the Lluest Equine

-Centre in Aberystwyth, to see Henry.

0:18:520:18:57

-He's a dressage horse

-who was injured recently.

0:18:580:19:01

-Eiry, tell me about Henry.

-

-https://www.facebook.com/eiry.bonner.3/posts/914538778673981

0:19:020:19:04

-We bought Henry from Ireland

-three or four years ago now.

0:19:040:19:08

-He hasn't been lame or ill

-since we've had him.

0:19:080:19:12

-When Mam phoned me

-when I was away at university...

0:19:130:19:17

-..to say that Henry couldn't walk,

-it came as a real shock.

0:19:170:19:21

-He'd never been lame before.

0:19:220:19:24

-We called the vet out

-to look at him.

0:19:250:19:28

-No-one knew what was wrong.

0:19:280:19:30

-We got X-rays,

-but nothing showed up.

0:19:310:19:33

-A friend then suggested...

0:19:330:19:36

-..that we got in touch with Andrew.

0:19:370:19:40

-Andrew's the reason

-why Henry's back to his old self.

0:19:410:19:45

-When someone comes to you

-with a horse for the first time...

0:19:460:19:50

-..what's the first thing you do?

0:19:500:19:53

-When I go to their stables,

-I ask them to walk the horse out.

0:19:530:19:59

-When a horse walks,

-you can see everything happening.

0:19:590:20:04

-There are four beats,

-one, two, three, four.

0:20:050:20:10

-You can see if it's moving well.

0:20:100:20:13

-Then I bring out my dowsing rods.

0:20:140:20:16

-People think that I'm a quack

-when the dowsing rods come out!

0:20:170:20:22

-But what the dowsing rods

-are looking for...

0:20:220:20:25

-..is the energy

-running through the horse.

0:20:260:20:29

-Say that there's a trauma

-in the shoulder, for example.

0:20:290:20:34

-The muscle around the shoulder

-has tightened.

0:20:340:20:38

-The circulation of the blood and

-lymph fluid through that section...

0:20:400:20:46

-..stagnates.

0:20:470:20:48

-The dowsing rods pick that up.

0:20:480:20:51

-That there's a blockage

-in the horse's system.

0:20:510:20:55

-I'll tell you what I'm looking for.

0:20:560:20:59

-I'll just start my preparation.

0:21:010:21:04

-This shows me

-that there's a slight problem...

0:21:140:21:17

-..with the front of the shoulder.

0:21:180:21:20

-From here, I work around

-the top of the withers.

0:21:210:21:25

-You can see it now.

0:21:260:21:27

-I'm looking for the release...

0:21:270:21:30

-..and it comes right back.

0:21:300:21:32

-You can see that Henry...

0:21:320:21:35

-..has a good release there.

0:21:350:21:39

-Then I'm going to work...

0:21:390:21:44

-..into this big muscle.

0:21:440:21:46

-If Eiry could try

-to get his head down...

0:21:470:21:51

-..I'll go down, and you'll be able

-to see the big muscle.

0:21:520:21:56

-You can see it.

0:21:570:21:58

-There.

0:22:020:22:03

-Can you see the muscle now?

0:22:040:22:06

-I'll just roll it, and release.

0:22:070:22:12

-By now, Henry has undergone

-several Bowen sessions with Andrew.

0:22:160:22:21

-Eiry's keen to run him in the ring

-after his therapy.

0:22:220:22:26

-To be honest,

-horses do more for me than people.

0:22:290:22:35

-When I work on horses,

-they don't judge me.

0:22:370:22:41

-They just accept the treatment.

0:22:410:22:45

-If I ride them or show them,

-they try their best for me.

0:22:450:22:51

-That's what's so nice

-about working on horses.

0:22:510:22:56

-You never stop learning.

0:22:580:23:01

-What I'm doing now, to finish off...

0:23:040:23:07

-..I'm going

-to release the coccyx here.

0:23:070:23:12

-Henry's good.

0:23:140:23:16

-And he's pulling.

0:23:170:23:18

-Whoa!

0:23:180:23:19

-HORSE BREAKS WIND

0:23:210:23:22

-Ugh! Thank you very much!

0:23:230:23:25

-He doesn't think much of that!

0:23:260:23:28

-That's what I think of you!
