Additional Event InformationAt the Summerhouse Therapy & Rehabilitation Centre we have the latest design of the Activo-Med water treadmill. Activo-Med have been producing water treadmills for over 17 years with over 80 installations throughout Europe and the U.K. Each horse is treated as an individual and a treatment/exercise plan is tailored accordingly. The treadmill is used to improve core strength, muscle development and stride length and is an ideal compliment as part of regular training and is suitable for all horses and ponies whatever their abilities. One of most important things is that the horse enjoys the experience, and the treadmill gives them a lot of confidence in their own ability to carry themselves and engage their core when working independently without a rider asking them to do so.
The water treadmill is highly beneficial in rehabilitation of horses post injury, it is suitable for a wide range of injuries ranging from tendon and ligaments to concussive injuries. The cold water has a positive effect on swelling and increases circulation in the area. The water itself has many therapeutic benefits, the resistance of the water increases muscular strength and research has shown that water can increase range of movement in joints and throughout the neck and back.
