Alex's research wins award at Saddle Research Trust Conference [1 December 2014]
As part of her Master of Science degree, Alex undertook research investigating the effect of McTimoney Chiropractic treatment on pressure measurements beneath the saddle. Alex found that there was a significant change to the horse's back after treatment, evidenced by reduced mean pressure under the saddle, essentially meaning that the rider's weight was more evenly distributed as a result of treatment. Alex presented this research as a poster at the Saddle Research Trust conference (29 Nov 2014) , where it was reviewed by world-renowned experts including Dr Sue Dyson of the Animal Health Trust. It was awarded the 'Best Student Poster', and Alex received her certificate from top Olympic Dressage rider Richard Davison.
