She graduated from Otago University as a Human Physiotherapist in 1990 and further trained as an Equine Physiotherapist in the UK a year later. She continues to undertake ongoing training for both horses and humans to keep her knowledge and skills completely up to date, including training with Lindsay Wilcox- Reid in Equipilates™.

In 2014 Sophie made the decision to follow her passion in physio specifically for riders and their horses. Combining her knowledge of physio and biomechanics with her love of movement analysis, she has been able to take advantage of her years of personal experience in several equestrian
disciplines together with her professional equine physio knowledge to offer a unique service to the equine community. Sophie is also an ESNZ para classifier.
