Kate Stephens (nee Kate Gladwin) BSc (Hons) MSc MCSP ACPAT(A) is a chartered physiotherapist specialising in veterinary physiotherapy who joined On Track Physio in 2012, covering referrals from Rossdales and working in some of the leading racing yards in Newmarket. She graduated as a physiotherapist from the University of Southampton in 2003 and having always dreamed of working with animals and in particular horses, she embarked on her education in veterinary physiotherapy at the Royal Veterinary College in 2009, later qualifying as a Category ‘A’ Member of ACPAT in 2011 with an MSc with merit.
Kate has always been passionate about Thoroughbred racehorses, having grown up around them, with her father training and racing point-to-pointers. Kate has ridden all her life, competing in all spheres throughout her childhood and early adult life. Her equine work in Newmarket, and independently further afield through Complete Performance Physiotherapy, is balanced around her job at Addenbrookes’ Hospital in Cambridge where she holds a specialist physiotherapy position within the paediatric team. Career highlights so far have been working with champion fillies, The Fugue, Taghrooda and Rizeena. Regarding work outside of horse racing, Kate Stephens can be contacted directly through her business that specialises in physiotherapy for sport and leisure horses, and riders.
