Who among us, including the horse, wouldn’t want to reduce recovery time post-injury?

Studies have indicated water treadmills can cut rehab time in half by increasing the buoyancy of the horse in water and reducing weight-bearing on limbs. In other words, the aqua treadmill provides gentle resistance to movement, so it is low impact and less wear and tear on bone, soft tissue, muscles, tendons and ligaments. It decreases stress on the injured limb, and promotes increased stride length, while the equine walks symmetrically.
