2015 Asian Games Eventing Medalist

 

Nicole Pearson testimonial Back 2 Form

 

I first met Jess Harkness at Osberton in 2013 when my horse pulled up after cross country very muscle bound and sore from a cut from a flint. It was a qualification run for the Asian Games and so pretty important that we completed well. I went to the Stable Manager in search of someone who could possibly help and was given Jess’ number.

 

Jess could not have been more helpful. She turned up at Scobie’s box almost immediately even though it was almost 6 p.m. and treated him and then promised to be back at 7 the next morning to treat him again before the trot up. He sailed through and went on to jump a great round in the showjumping and earn our qualification.

 

I was so impressed by how well the horse responded to Jess that I managed to persuade her to come to treat all our yard on a regular basis.

 

The following September at the Asian Games, Scobie and Phin both performed brilliantly and earned us a Team Bronze medal in Eventing, a first for Hong Kong. Since then, Scobie has continued to make my dreams come true by taking me clear around my first Open Intermediate at Bicton.

 

None of this would have been possible, I am totally convinced, without Jess’ continued help, advice and support. My horses feel amazing and perform brilliantly thanks to her!

EYJ Eventing testimonial Jess HarknessJess Harkness has been such an important part of my team for so long I couldn’t imagine eventing without her.

 

I am a strong believer in good preparation to maximise performance and this comes down to making sure the horses are as soft, supple and straight both through their muscular and skeletal systems, this provides the best foundation to build on.

 

I believe in involving Jess from the start of the horses programme. The muscle tone on my team of horses has improved a lot since Jess has given them all regular treatments.

 

This has reflected in our results and our most successful season to date. Not only in good dressage scores but also into the jumping phases. Jess has a very good working rapport with the horses and excellent people skills. Her work ethic is very impressive, always restructuring her day to fit around the clients, this includes managing her family life around her work.

Hunters and EventersBack 2 Form testimonial Hunters

I have been using Jess to treat my horses for about a year now since being highly recommended by a trainer. Since Jess's treatments on the horses I have been very pleased and have noticed a real difference.

Jess caters for each horses needs as an individual and thoroughly listens and questions me before fixing any problems t ailoring treatment and aftercare to their specific needs and routine.

Regular treatments to my clients hunters throughout the hunt season enables me to send them out knowing they are physically comfortable and able to do their job.

I have learnt a great deal from Jess whist she is working on the horses, she always has a great enthusiasm and dedication to her work and has a great connection with all the horses. I would highly recommend her to any one.

Back 2 Form Veterinary TestimonialMr Robert Elliott BVetMed MRCVS

I would not hesitate to recommend Jess to clients in need of imaginative, thoroughly-professional and very caring McTimoney Chiropractic services.

There is a very thorough history taking and recording, full dialogue between referring veterinary surgeon and herself, as well as taking on board the all-important Owner observations that are expertly teased out by experienced consultation skills.

Jess puts all my clients at ease, fully explains what she finds, sets realistic targets and once the initial sessions are concluded, gives clients advice when to seek her help again, thus allowing each case to progress at its own natural pace. Additional complementary treatments may also be recommended.

I have referred clients and patients to Jess for many years now, as well as my own, and I have full confidence in her very clear skills and knowledge.

Jess Harkness has been an indispensable part of the Chris Hall Equestrian team since she qualified in 2003. Her consistent approach quickly identifies symptoms and potential causes that may be affecting the performance of a horse and treatment is applied accordingly, in a sensitive manner, producing positive results.

\r\n

Regular treatments of the eventers, hunters and young horses in my yard enable me to feel confident that no horse is being asked to perform when suffering from any painful misalignments.

\r\n

On-site treatments by Jess produced outstanding results for Killard Enigma, ridden by Chris at Blenheim Horse Trials CCI*** 2012. 'He has never felt so relaxed and loose at a competition before, I felt he was really at his best'
