Sophie Leighton. March 2009.

“Paul came to see my horse, Ivy, at the suggestion of a friend he'd treated and who, to my amusement, called him a 'miracle worker'. I was hugely sceptical. But I had nothing to lose as the vet wanted me to retire Ivy from show jumping because she was limping badly and the X-rays showed 'wear and tear' on her front right knee.

Paul said it had nothing to do with her knee and held his hands over her spine and said it was 'out' in four different places. He touched one area, Ivy bucked, and freakily, there was a loud crack.

Astonishingly, she walked out of that stable no longer limping and has been perfect ever since. “
