A Water Treadmill is a scientifically proven method to assist in the rehabilitation and pre-training of Horses. By utilising the resistance and buoyancy of water, the water treadmill allows Horses to exercise in a low impact environment whilst still allowing the horses muscles, tendons and ligaments to build and strengthen.

Our Water Treadmill is a popular training option for:
- Horses that are recovering from injuries (tendons, ligaments, shin splints etc)
- Horses that need to strengthen and develop before a racing season.
- Horses that need to maintain condition and fitness (both mental and physical) during a break.
Horses love to be in the water. They relax into the routine within days and enjoy the low stress environment our treadmill provides.
