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. 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. We find that in using the water treadmill that we can accelerate conditioning, improve performance, enhance muscle development and flexibility, higher intensity workout, bring back horses recovering from injury safer and faster. Using the water level to increase buoyancy reduces a horse’s body weight by up to 60% thus reducing the strain on effected joints and tendons!
