Layla Maidment PGDip VetPhys., BSc (Hons)
Having always been passionate about animals from a young age I knew my career path had to follow suit. At aged 11 I had my first riding lesson and from that point I was hooked. I dedicated myself to my lessons and caring for the horses, this led me to loaning my first horse and competing at the Pony Club National Championships to come 5th.
In 2014 I started my BSc in Animal Science at Canterbury Christ Church University where I completed my undergraduate with a 1st class degree. During this time I competed at BUCS competitions and captained the team for two years, this experience gave me in-depth knowledge of how each horse is really an individual.
Knowing my strong points revolved around biology specifically anatomy and physiology I discovered MSc Veterinary Physiotherapy course at Writtle University College, and I knew straight away this was the direction career path was headed.
During my time at University I started working at The Horse Trust with 150 horses. The majority of them being retired working horses, this role has given me a wealth of knowledge and understanding of equine disorders and injuries.
I qualified as a Veterinary Physiotherapist with the National Association of Veterinary Physiotherapists (NAVP), an organisation well respected by Vets and other professionals alike and my passion for caring for animals is as strong as ever.
Would highly recommend Layla, she thoroughly explained all of the steps as to what she was doing and enabled me to understand what I need to do up until my next visit with her. Very knowledgable and friendly, she was very calm and patient whilst dealing with my moody mare. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a physio!
