My ambitions are to contribute to the welfare and performance of sport horses and their riders. These ambitions source from my innate passion for sport horses, which I gained growing up between horses and competing up to an international level in show jumping. In my early riding/ (Veterinary) Physiotherapy career, I had the privilege to work with athletes from different equestrian disciplines, such as para-dressage, racing, show jumping, eventing and dressage. The biomechanics of the horse-rider coupling fascinates me inexorably, no matter the discipline or competition level. Based on the latter fascination for horse-rider biomechanics, I endeavour to explore the equine research field complementary to my practical work with horses and riders. This endeavour led to the launch of my Doctoral study at Hartpury University in 2020, in which we are investigating the spinal non-linear dynamics in loaded sport horses. The combination of the research projects, the riding, and the physiotherapy keeps me very much engaged with different aspects of the equine industry and enables me to relate with multidisciplinary equestrian professionals. EquiPage is definitely one of my favourite examples of these relations.

Puck Lemmens

Personal Trainer

My name is Puck Lemmens, 21 years old and I come from a small village Maarheeze, where I still live now. When I was seven, I came into sport with the sports world, especially with team sports. I played football until I was 16, I continued with fitness and strength sports. I also started the sports training. After a successful internship at a gym in Eindhoven, I had offered a job there that I used with both hands. I work here as a fitness instructor and I have learned many courses and courses to stay myself. I wanted to focus on people, on individual attention, motivation and perseverance. Since 2018 I have started an internship at the ISP-Group where I have received many growth opportunities. I think it's very important that people enjoy their training. Of course, a successful workout will also have moments of abandon and confrontation, but that only makes you stronger. No pain no gain.

Charlotte De Bruyne

MSc Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation Sciences

Founder of Equinésio

Growing up, I realised I wanted to work with horses for a living, but I didn’t feel like the traditional paths of becoming a rider, livery owner or veterinarian suited me.

I didn’t want to just “work with horses”, I wanted to make them feel better, and help them perform and feel the best way they can.

I graduated as a human physiotherapist at the University of Antwerp and continued my education in the MSc Veterinary Physiotherapy course at Hartpury University.


My work is aimed at optimising animals’ quality of life, by improving their function and movement. To achieve this, I draw from a wide knowledgebase of anatomy, biomechanics, physiology and psychology. Using evidence-based techniques, I the animal, painting a clear picture of treatable parameters in the form of a problem list. 
I believe in a multidisciplinary approach, working together with veterinarians, farriers, saddle and bit fitters, trainers, grooms and owners to obtain the best results for our animals.
