Swimming is an excellent way for horses to build stamina, improve endurance and enhance cardiovascular fitness. Not only is it an ideal variation to a regular training regime, it is also an important aid to rehabilitation.
The equine swimming pool is an essential part of our therapy equipment. Our state-of-the-art pool is a fantastic training aid and also helps in the recovery and rehabilitation of horses.
THERAPEUTIC BENEFITS OF USING THE POOL
Swimming has many benefits. It adds variety to a horse’s training regime. Additionally, many find it an enjoyable experience. The water provides buoyancy, which relieves pressure on joints, bones and ligaments. It also provides enough resistance to ensure a thorough workout. Thus swimming can aid both muscular development and maintain cardiovascular fitness.
Swimming can also keep an injured horse fit without damaging any affected areas. Without the use of a pool, recovery would be considerably longer as the principal alternatives are box rest and a change in diet.
