Words from Christine's Clients

Hi there,
My horse Jake had been showing signs of discomfort and possible pain. Despite previous treatments I felt his body needed deepest investigation. His response to initial treatment was quite remarkable and he was galloping and playing the following day. The angry expression was gone. He held the treatment well and felt like a different horse to ride.
Follow up treatment today was again remarkable in the way he responded and invited the attention. Big, big releases and stretches. Will enjoy watching his progress over the next couple of weeks before his next treatment.
Thanks so much Christine
Sue Hain

Couldn’t recommend Christine's services highly enough. Her knowledge and experience is second to none compared to other practitioners I have used in the past. Her genuine care of the animal she treats is honest and real. Amanda and the other girls customer service, knowledge and help is also outstanding. Wouldn’t go anywhere else to have my reining mare treated.

I found Christine to be both professional and informative. Just thought you would like to know I've just got in from a big ride through the hills with a completely wet area under the saddle. Well done and thankyou for your good work.

Love having Christine out to see my horses. She is a genuinely lovely human and is so thorough with the horses. Explains everything to you and gives a report at the end with exercises for improvement in whatever areas that require it. Thanks so much for treating my kids so wonderfully :-)
Charlotte Bishop

Christine has been treating my horses for a few years now and I won't stop using her until she retires. Pre comp, post comp or general maintenance treatments she always spends her time observing every tiny detail and because of this, I now recommend her to anyone and everyone I can.

Super duper grateful to my amazing practitioner Christine Scully for giving my body a much needed treatment yesterday! My muscles in my upper back and shoulders were so tight and frequently spasming causing me much grief and discomfort. Was strange yet so relieving being under Christine's hands yesterday, as opposed to usually seeing her working on my beloved horses. Cannot recommend her for either yourself or your horses enough and I back her work 100%. My shoulders don't feel pinned back together anymore 😂 Not sponsored, no lovey dovey crap just blatant truth, she is honestly so good. Kick her facebook page a like and check out all the treatments she has to offer for you and your ponies.

Such a great experience today with Christne, to assess and treat my 24yo Arab. It was so lovely to deal with someone who understands my horse the way I do. Someone who takes the time to cover all bases and offer very knowledgeable advice when I have been feeling very apprehensive about returning to riding with my horse. The treatment was effective, gentle and very thorough. Aramis certainly enjoyed it and so did I. Thank you ACATT.

Helped me so much more than I realised I needed, I've woken up today with soft happy muscles. Thank you
Angela Harris

Just wanted to send you a quick email to thank you for coming to our rally yesterday. I had a lot of very positive feedback - which is wonderful . . . (considering I could hear a few groans from members when they saw "Theory" on the rally plan at the start of the day!) You made the theory session fun and informative and I think having the horses involved helped a lot!! As mentioned at the rally, I would be very happy to book you in again next year. I will be in touch early in 2017.

I hope this makes you smile! What amazing results after 4 consecutive acupuncture treatments he's galloping up a steep hill this morning, so grateful for your professional services, advice and guidance! Xxx

Wow!!! This is insane 😮 last night I put some of the magic goop on. I felt this really intense sensation, I can’t describe it, it was really intense!! Anyway woke up this morning and realised my ankle felt very different. Low and behold the swelling in my ankle and foot is half what it was.

I have used it several times on my horses, but this is the first time I have actually seen something that undeniably shows how powerful it is. I am in total shock!

The magic of goop. Last Wed, I got kicked (by one of my own 😡). Full hoof, full power, thought he had broken my femur. Point of impact just above the knee. Oh the pain!! The rest of the day (after walking half a km home on it, not broken, phew) I used Magic Goop and cold packs every 20-30 mins. Then strapped it using cheapo kinesio tape. The following day goop and cold every couple of hours and spasmodically with goop since. The result, virtually no bruising. Yes the magic of goop, thanks ACATT.

Christine Scully you DO have magic hands! Chalet has NEVER felt better!!!
Christine Scully you are amazing.... As she is leaving " I found Chalet a little sore over his wither on the right side too" me.." Oh yes, he started head tilting to the left the last few rides / I forgot about that, that explains it then!, I thought it was me!" Lol x you're a star Christine!!!

Update on first ride post treatment- we got our shwung back !!!! :) 
We WON!!!!!!! thankyou again!!!! xxxxx he felt AMAZING!
I am so very thankful to Christine and the team at ACATT for keeping my dressage pony sound and comfortable. Her knowledge and techniques are second to none. I highly recommend ACATT practitioners for looking after the wellbeing and soundness of your horse for any discipline. The knowledge of anatomy and treatments are outstanding and extremely affordable!
Jodie Barton
Horse Riding Instructor

Thank you Christine for your wonderful treatment of Jimmy. You took a very sore horse who was obviously suffering and after a course of treatments put him in a position where he could return to work and competition jumping.
Joan Hepp

Christine initially massaged & treated our horse Ridgey for over 18mths. In this time she managed and guided his rehabilitation, it was amazing watching as I had already spent 12 months on vets, physio, and accupuncture at a cost of hundreds of$$$ with no outcome. Her committment and ongoing care is beyond expectation.. Thank-you I highly reccommend ACATT to everyone, you will be so grateful and so will your horses.
Mary Tropeano

And 7 years later: Christine and ACATT have been treating Ridgey for about 7 years now, and there is no one else I would trust with his well being, always a wealth of knowledge and advice!
Bianca Tropeano

Thank you Christine for your assisting with my foundering pony. You are a great help to me and all my horses.
Karen Brown

Christine you have done a simply brilliant job with our horses.
Spotting what others could not see, working so hard and making so much difference to their movement and jump.
The horses love to see you even if its just for maintenance, mentally and physically it makes them and us feel great!
Thank you so much!!

Had to let you know ~ Mystique had three days off physio and brought her in yesterday. Well she was vroom. Stepped over uneven poles. Then took off bucking broncing n snorting. Slowed her up to lovely passage work, Feeling good. I jumped on bareback and she was so supple. Then lunged again.  Remarkable improvement. Thank you darling lady xx 

Good morning gorgeous lady, a happy update to report. Mystique still smiling after acupuncture yesterday, & marching up for herbal mash at walk in straight line, still appears to have full shoulder pendulum swing. Lets hope we've tracked the rehab into full recovery (even if only for trail riding xx) THANKS BE TO YOU !!!
Magic hands, what can I say xx but a huge holistic thank you
Stefanie Hall
Dressage Rider.

I have owned a 21 year old ex western Appy, Ledger, for 4 years now, and in that time I have had so many equine chiro's, physio's, acupuncturists, vets and saddle fitters come and look at Ledger because he has an issue with his saddling up.
I was told it was his girth, his saddle,his back but nobody could find the cause of his fits.
He was collapsing all legs to the ground and falling over on to what ever was in the way. I was even told he had a mental problem.
Then I was introduced to Christine Scully. After the first visit she was unsure what she was dealing with, but when I went for a ride the following day I couldn't believe the difference in him, this gave Christine and I some hope of helping ledger with this awful problem, she never put him in the to hard basket like all the others.
Christine kept coming and smoothing out all his lumps and bumps, poor Ledger had so many different sore spots that it took Christine 5 visits before she found the problem.
He had back, neck, hamstring, lower back problems not until she fixed all them and worked on his shoulder did he show her his pain. When she touched his shoulder he almost went down on all 4's and that's when she knew she had found his pain.
Poor Ledger was compensating all over his body because of his shoulder, now Christine is fixing this with her magic hands.
She didn't put Ledger in the too hard basket, her patience has paid off, he hasn't fallen to the ground since and his pain is going with every visit.
You can tell Ledger is enjoying the outings more and saddling isn't a worry for him as much. I want to thank Christine for her stubbornness and her persistence.
My old boy deserves a great retirement of riding once a week down a few dirt roads for some grass, now it's even better as he is almost free of pain.
Thank you Christine from the bottom of mine and Ledger's heart. Forever in your Debt,
Carol Campbell

Thank you Christine!! As I said the other day, I wouldn't have been able to do it without you!! My horse will be going out for a very well deserved spell once she gets home :)
Nicky Hayes

Christine Scully you have magic hands.. think he's feeling better and looks 100% sound to me..
Rebekah King

A Magic Goop testimony. Grandson had a nasty spill of his bike trying to jump something and got caught by the end of his handle bars in the ribs. Got left with a nasty painful graze about an inch wide and 3 inches long with the bruising visably building behind it. Applied goop and ice twice in a 90 minute period and all he is left with now is the graze. There is no bruising and very little pain. Went from a very distressed little boy to back on his bike and having another go (ok.. so I cringed ...just a little) just 3 hours later. You can buy your Magic Goop supply from ACATT.
