Ellie is an IRVAP registered Veterinary Physiotherapist. I have undergone significant training in order to become qualified as a Canine and Equine Veterinary Physiotherapist. After achieving a Foundation degree in Equine Science at Oxford Brookes, I then went on to complete the Advanced Certificate in Veterinary Physiotherapy through Canine and Equine Physiotherapy Training (CEPT), which is accredited at Level 7 by The University of Middlesex.
Upon graduating as a fully qualified Veterinary Physiotherapist, I set up my own mobile mixed practice business where I work alongside veterinary practices to treat a wide range of cases. Having been involved with horses and dogs all my life and my father Kim Brassey trained many years ago as a successful race horse trainer, now retired, yet has many relatives succeeding as a race horse trainer and my mother Joanna Brassey successfully retrained race horses up to Grand Prix level Dressage. I have successfully retrained race horses in showing and Eventing level who have then gone on with different owners to fulfil their chosen careers. Previously I have broken in youngsters which led me to breed my own Belgium Warmblood Sports horse out of an ISH swiss bred mare, who was awarded second place at HOYS 2012 as a riding horse in the 'Search for a star' class. I then researched suitable sires and chose 'Parco' an Olympic winning show jumper as the stallion to Sparco my youngster, a rising 5 year old whom I have produced myself and continues to compete BSJA. I appreciate exactly what is involved in order to get to the top of your game and can help you during this process whatever your discipline or ability is.
I have worked all over the world, including France, Australia, New Zealand and the UK. Working abroad consisted of Stud work, Track work rider, veterinary assistance, and parade /mares/race horses at Magic millions and Inglis horse auction sales and also worked for top trainers and highly rated studs. In the UK I have worked for several competition riders, breeding studs, veterinary practices and freelance groom/rider.
I am also available for groundwork and exercise prescription clinics, demonstrations and lessons. My mum and I run a business part-full livery yard at Stables, Chilton Foliat, Berkshire. One of the most popular international training yards around. Please call me for livery services or other.
I am normally seen with my Fox red (Nulla), alongside my horses, friends and clients, or eating chocolate!
Based at Marlborough Wiltshire and Boomerang Stables, Berkshire covering a 25 mile radius.
Willing to travel beyond.
