REHAB

 

  • The Water Treadmill with solarium above can help improve the horse’s range of movement and build muscle while putting minimum stress on the front legs. It is a low intensity workout that makes it suitable for both fit horses and those returning to work after injury. The treadmill encourages the horse to ‘sit’ behind, making them drive with the hind legs while taking the weight off the front legs. While working on the water treadmill, the horse takes bigger, longer steps than they would on land. This helps to build up the muscles in the hind quarters and over the lumber area of the back.

  • The Hydrotherapy Spa with solarium above is used to treat and prevent a multitude of injuries in 2oC saltwater. The cold temperature induces a large rush of blood and circulation which otherwise would not be present. This drug free therapy can be used for injury prevention and also to increase mobility and reduce swelling in the limbs before and after racing / competing.​​
