Hello... I'm Allie, a passionate equestrian of (way) over 35 years. After 15 years of working in the City as a Senior Business Analyst, in 2018 I  founded The Horsebox Spa, a mobile equine spa studio -  an industry first!

In 2020 during a routine sheath clean on a friends horse, I found a mass within the sheath which was later diagnosed by a vet as melanomas. He was admited to Bell Equine within the month for a sheath and part penis amputation (4 years on, he's healthy and coping so well!).  Horse & Hound picked up on his story and I was inundated with requests from clients to treat their horses.  


I decided if I could help improve the comfort or play a part in helping to save the life of just one horse, then sheath cleaning was a treatment I wanted to offer. 

I'm professional, knowledgeable, calm and happy to work with even the most tricky or anxious horses, allowing each horse the time they need, treating every horse with the same love and care as my own.


My hygiene treatments are 5*.  I work to uncompromisingly high biosecurity and hygiene standards.  That, plus my passion for horses, and experience of sheath cleaning 1000's of horses is what makes me BEHA's chosen hygienist to represent the South East of England


I am committed  to education and the importance of hygiene for every horses health, comfort and performance; and alongside BEHA, dedicated to raising the industry standards and establishing 'Best Practice' around this service.

Such a professional! Allie explained everything she was doing & why her service is so important.

She took her time to make each horse comfortable & relaxed, never rushing them.

We had originally booked our gelding’s in, but Allie did my mare too. Boy am I glad she did. With no signs of discomfort displayed, Allie found 4 large beans in our mare !! We will all be using Allie’s service again

Allie came to give our lovely boys, Bosco and Freckles, their first ever hygiene clean today and she was amazing! She treated both boys so quietly and gently and they immediately relaxed into their treatments. Allie is so knowledgeable and interesting and it was a great experience for both our horses and for us as their owners.
