Why a Water Treadmill?
Perfect for fitness and rehabilitation
Helps build muscle
Increases stride length
Incline option available
The water treadmill is a highly-effective full-body workout, naturally improving respiration. The benefits can be seen on dry land with an increased joint function, increased stride length, and suppleness through the back, thus helping to build the topline. The nature of the water treadmill is to provide low-concussion resistance and cardiovascular training. The buoyancy of the water reduces weight-bearing stress on the joints and tissue structures, allowing an increased range of motion.
Working a horse on a water treadmill can help improve the horse's range of movement and build muscle while putting minimum stress on the front legs and hooves. It is a low-intensity, cardiovascular workout, making it suitable for both fit horses and those returning to work after injury.
