Who We Are

Clinic Owners and Physiotherapists:   Sandra Oxtoby and Keira Forsyth attended their Masters of Science in Physiotherapy together at the University of Alberta.  While here, they shared a vision of opening a physio practice that could help everyone and anyone, while having expertise in equestrian athletes.  


Together at Equus Physio their primary focus is to assess, diagnose and treat injuries, dysfunctions and asymmetries. Their therapy will help restore optimal level of functioning through education, therapeutic exercise, medical modality equipment and manual hands-on treatment.  


  • We offer 1 on 1 treatments to ensure the therapist is entirely focused on your needs

  • Treatment times are longer than the average clinic. This makes sure therapist isn't rushing through appointments and allows you to feel comfortable

  • We believe in not only rehabilitation but also prehabilitation (preventing injuries)

  • We provide each equestrian and equine with an individualized home exercise program that is tailored to your individual discipline and specific dysfunction.

  • As competitive riders ourselves, we know our sport and understand the importance of getting back in the saddle.

Our purpose is to innovate the world of equine rehabilitation and specialized equestrian healthcare in order to improve wellness and performance in both entities.

Our mission is to provide high quality, evidence based treatment in the form of equestrian physiotherapy and massage therapy, as well as equine physio and equine sports massage.

Our vision is to energize the world of equine physio and rehabilitation and inspire equestrians to participate in proactive health care treatments across all disciplines to minimize pain and improve performance.
