The aqua treadmill may be the most perfect type of conditioning and rehabilitation for the equine athlete.
It enhances and maintains conditioning in a full body exercise, giving the horse a perfect balance and strength as well as increasing length of stride of an older athlete, bringing it back to its original state.
The resistance of the water and the lack of concussion enable horses to work themselves fully and with no pain, using the same muscle groups as on land.
Decreases competition related injuries during the conditioning of your horse, helps the reconditioning of veteran athletes, or the freshining of animals long in training.
Safe alternative to hand walking in post surgical care, offering less chance of re injury, better healing, and speedier return to normal activity.
Lengthens stride while developing the same muscles used in normal ground work.
When low impact is what is required, this is the perfect exercise.
