Benefits of the Aqua Equine Treadmill
How it works: The horses walk on a moving Treadmill
belt and as the water is added they lift their legs up
out of the water in a more vertical plane. This has the
benefit of increasing joint flexion and exaggerates the
use of the back muscles. With no rider to influence the
horse’s way of going the muscles develop symmetrically
as the horse works in balance and without interference
in a straight line. The water reduces concussive forces
allowing the safe strengthening of muscles and tendons.
Whilst the water does provide a degree of buoyancy
and support around the limbs, the horse has to work
hard against the increased resistance of the water and
this will develop stride length on dry land, tighten core
stomach muscles and the ligaments around the stifle.
The cold water on the lower limbs provides a massaging
and cooling effect excellent for horses recovering from
What Does the Aqua Equine Treadmill Do?
The Aqua Treadmill offers the benefits of hydrotherapy
for horses in a natural exercise programme without
a rider at controlled speeds and gradually introduces
water in order for the horse to recover faster from
certain muscle/joint injuries over a series of sessions.
