ELITE EQUINE VETS
Cathy worked in Germany in the mid 90’s and spent most of her time with rehab vet and German event rider, Dr Matthias Baumann. Matthias won Olympic team gold at Seoul and team Bronze at Barcelona Olympics. Cathy was lucky enough to spend half her day grooming Matthias' eventers, and the other half in the rehab clinic. This is where she first learnt massage techniques and gained her passion for massaging eventers and treating like them like athletes. Cathy was lucky enough to groom for Matthias at the Atlanta Olympics in 1996, unfortunately for Matthias his horse was not able to compete at the last minute. This meant that Cathy assisted the other grooms for the duration of the Games and spent the whole cross country day in the cool down at the finish.
Back home in Australia, Cathy studied a diploma in Equine Sports massage with American Don Doran and massage is still her hobby, 20 years on. Cathy loves the sport of Eventing and helping Will and Em and their beautiful horses at events whenever she can.
