Phillip Adams


Lecturer in Veterinary Physiotherapy


I have worked in many equine disciplines including showjumping, dressage and eventing where I became interested in the horses way of going, it's structure, the effect of the rider and how each discipline affects the horses physiology. As a mature student, I returned to education after many years working as an operations manager in a large communications company where I was responsible for a team of people as well as meeting company objectives. Previously to this, I worked as a yard manager and federal rider in Florence Italy after spending two years at the Yorkshire Riding Centre under Jane and Christopher Bartle. I completed an Equine Science degree at Harper Adams University whilst working at the equine unit at Reaseheath College. I started at Writtle in September 2015 where I am currently course manager for the Integrated Masters in Veterinary Physiotherapy and BSc Animal Therapy whilst completing my MSc in Veterinary Physiotherapy.
