Nycky Edleston

I live in OxfordNycky Edleston Physiotherapy where I work as a Veterinary Physiotherapist. I happily travel all over Oxfordshire and neighbouring counties to treat horses, dogs and other pets. I qualified first as a Nycky Edleston PhysiotherapyChartered Physiotherapist from Oxford Brookes University in 2007 and later trained for 2 years at the Royal Veterinary College to be a Veterinary Physiotherapist in 2011. I am registered with the CSP, ACPAT and RAMP.

I have ridden since a young age and competed in affiliated dressage, showjumping and eventing. I am a qualified instructor and have trained competitive riders and competed horses for other people. I now have a  retired ISH showjumper and a 5yr old TB x ISH.

I  have owned Canine Physiotherapydogs all my life and trained some in obedience and searching. I currently have a 10yr old Staffie bitch and a 15 year old rescued Staffie male, both full of energy and very friendly.

I really love my work and take special pride in treating each client  in the best possible way. I love meeting all the characters out there from miniature Shetlands to 25year old RDA ponies and from 4 week old Daxi to 15 year old spaniels. They are all special.

Leanne Baker

Leanne developed an interest in the field of veterinary physiotherapy when she was working as a groom for a professional event rider in Wiltshire. She qualified as a chartered physiotherapist in 2012 from the university of the west of England and then developed her skills for a few years within the NHS. Leanne then returned to study at Hartpury College and qualified as a Veterinary physiotherapist in 2016. She is registered with ACPAT, RAMP the HCPC and the Chartered society of physiotherapy as a fully insured physiotherapist. Since qualifying, Leanne has worked with both equines and canines in various settings, gaining experience in many different areas.

Leanne has ridden horses all her life and now owns her lovely Irish draft, Henry who she enjoys in her spare time. She also has her best friend Barney, a black Labrador who used to be a patient and needed a loving home. Leanne absolutely loves her work and takes a huge amount of pride in providing quality treatment to each client and loves watching them improve and achieve their goals.

Nicole Austin

Having grown up around horses and dogs, I spend most of my childhood and teenage years within the Pony Club, or Eventing my own horse, Freebie. It was through competing and managing my own horses conditions that I discovered veterinary physiotherapy as a career. I graduated from Coventry University as a Chartered Physiotherapist in 2014 and spent a few years working in various human physiotherapy fields within the NHS, before completing my Veterinary Physiotherapy training at Liverpool University. I am HCPC, CSP and ACPAT registered.

I still have my old Event horse, who is now semi retired, and we love to get out hacking when we can. I also have a Border Terrier called Cali, who keeps us very entertained with her terrier-like ways!

I now work for the NHS in a busy A&E department, alongside seeing my equine and canine clients. I love getting to know each and every animal I treat, along with their families, and working together to manage their problems. Treating animals feels like a treat for me!
