Therapeutic activity

Stefan Stammer has been looking after his international clientele, from leisure horses to competitive athletes at Olympic level, as a physiotherapist and equine osteopath since 1999. Since 2001, Stefan Stammer has dedicated himself full-time and exclusively to the treatment of horses.

Developer in theory and practice

He has been developing therapy and rehabilitation concepts for horses since 1999. The Stammer Kinetics™ concept he developed includes an independent model for thinking about the biomechanics of the horse as well as manual and training therapy strategies for the functional movement of horse and rider. Together with his partners at VT equiline, he is developing a new generation of rehabilitation equipment for horses and is himself the owner of several patents and registered designs on the subject.
