treadmill

The water treadmill is an exceptional tool for the rehabilitation of the equine athlete recovering from soft tissue trauma, surgery, or illness. In addition, the treadmill is commonly used for healthy horses needing more strength or endurance or to help correct gait imbalances. It will promote rapid build-up of muscle across the shoulders, hind end, and top line of the horse. Unlike swimming, the treadmill mimics the normal activity that the horse is being used for and therefore utilizes the same muscles. Through control of water temperature, water height (to control buoyancy and resistance), speed and duration we can customize a protocol to the specific needs of the individual horse in a safe manner.
