In the first week since the 'Aqua Equine Treadmill' arrived and was installed, it has had barely a moments respite, with over 40 horses put through their paces thus far. A variety of horses have sampled the benefits of it's usage; some of which are currently in full work, some are just coming toward the end of their winter break, not to mention several of the yearlings, all of which have readily accepted and enjoyed this amazing piece of equipment. With everyone now competent operators of the water treadmill, we've certainly been making the most of having such a top class facility.
Currently situated outside, it is surrounded by rubber matting for safetly and to give the horses a place to stand and have their legs and feet washed off ready to go in, but early next year it will be inside with a dedicated wash off area and some more heat lamps.
Just to keep you up to date and show you how the treadmill works, and some of its benefits we have put together a short video documenting our first use of it, so please take a look at the video below and enjoy!
