UNDERWATER TREADMILL

Our Hydrohorse is a 14 foot in-ground submerged treadmill with 1400 gallons of heated water and is a key component for many of our rehabilitation and fitness programs. It provides a controlled, buoyant environment for low impact exercise and speeds the return to fitness and performance. It builds muscle and strength in an environment that reduces the concussive stress up to 60%.

  • Soft tissue injuries

  • Kissing spine or any back soreness

  • Muscle trauma

  • Bone edema or bruising

  • Increase fitness and muscle strength

This aerated spa bath is a great treatment option for many of our rehabilitation patients. The concentrated salt-water in the cold spa is chilled to 35F and carefully maintained to provide optimum treatment conditions and increase circulation. We can adjust the water level to treat specific areas on the lower limb as well as having a hose attachment that can treat other areas that can’t be submerged.

  • Soft tissue injuries

  • Bone edema and bruising

  • Strains and sprains

72’ FREE FLOW EXERCISER

Our custom designed trojan free flow exerciser is 72’ and designed specifically for optimal exercise, and to accommodate all breeds of horses. Its large diameter not only allows space for larger breed horses, but also accommodates movement in a wider circle. This allows more direct forward motion, and less torque on your horse’s joints. The roomy compartments and flexible panels minimize injury risk. Our cover allows for exercise rain or shine, and protection of our well-kept footing. The footing is sand and rubber. It is worked and cleaned daily. This makes it ideal for rehabilitation and exercise, creating even and safe footing to reduce stress on your horse’s legs and joints.
