Personal profile

Personal profile

Jane has taught within Higher Education across animal, equine and veterinary fields. She is a qualified veterinary nurse and gained her Masters in Equine Science before completing her doctorate exploring the application of surface electromyography (EMG) as a tool to assess muscle adaptation during training in racehorses and sport horses. Her main areas of professional interest include:

 1. Scientific evaluation of equestrian performance and training: horse, rider and horse and rider partnership including epidemiological analysis of injury related risk factors and prediction of performance, Electromyographic analysis of equine muscle activity during training and rehabilitation, role of physiological analysis during training, and evaluation of the demands of competition on horse and rider.

2. Rider impacts on equitation: rider personality, decision-making, kinematic evaluation of the rider and horse-rider dyad, rider and jockey wellbeing, rein tension and EMG during ridden exercise and factors which influence rider reaction times.

3. Reliability assessment: across equestrian science and veterinary physiotherapy; applying statistical techniques to test the reliability and validity of accepted industry practices and proposed standardised tests to promote evidence informed practice e.g. lameness scoring, posture assessment, range of movement post therapeutic interventions.

4. Human-animal interaction: exploration of the impact of animals on human wellbeing and how human interactions influence animal welfare.

Jane is the co-editor and author of Training for Equestrian Performance with Dr David Evans, and The Complete Textbook of Animal Health and Welfare, and is a Trustee and Treasurer for the International Society of Equitation Science. Jane is keen that research should not just be for academics and works regularly with riders and trainers across showjumping, eventing and racing to help them improve their horses’ success.
