Our custom in-ground water treadmill is a safe way to condition and strengthen the equine athlete with the added benefits of buoyancy and reduced concussion. The water resistance makes for a great workout and promotes symmetrical muscle development, and increased strength and tightening of the joint capsules, tendons, and ligaments.
Water treadmill exercise is a great cross-training tool as well as a rehabilitation and preconditioning tool to prepare for heavier training.
