Equatic Spa

Our circular equine swimming pool with two access points is the safest design in the industry. For initial training, the horse can safely get in and out of the pool easily, while the experienced equine swimmer can swim multiple rounds to gain maximum benefit in a customized training protocol adjusted to their current fitness level.

Swimming gives the equine athlete a great aerobic workout and a full-body conditioning without concussion, which makes it a great cross-training, rehabilitation, and preconditioning tool.
