The treadmill is the perfect tool to help improve your horse’s endurance and increase muscle mass – without the weight of the rider. Treadmill sessions are beneficial for horses of all ages and training levels. It is the perfect way to maintain your horse’s top line, gain muscle fitness in the back legs and hindquarters, and improve overall balance and coordination. It is a low stress, high intensity workout all done at the walk. Horses on the treadmill can benefit by becoming more flexible, stronger, and less prone to injury. It can also be used to rebuild strength and provide exercise for a horse coming back from an injury. The treadmill has customizable time, speed and inclines that can be altered to fit your horse’s specific needs. Packages are available to work together with each horse’s individual training program.
