Making waves with in-ground and above-ground underwater treadmill systems for horses.

There’s a new wave catching all over the global equine world: HydroTherapy with underwater treadmill systems from Hydro Horse 1, Inc. Their submerged treadmill systems are a high tech, engineered combination of a treadmill, whirlpool and swimming pool – all designed to aid in the therapeutic healing, strengthening, conditioning and training of performance horses from all disciplines.

HydroHorse offers both in-ground and above-ground units, which can be customized to meet the specific needs of equine athletes, particularly in a variety of demanding disciplines from jumping, dressage and eventing to barrels, cutting and racing.

Using these systems for conditioning and rehab allows the horse to exercise in a controlled environment, using its normal gait and the same muscles it would be using in regular training…without the undue stress or trauma. The horse is partially buoyant, with 40% or more of the body weight displaced by the water, yet the horse feels safe and “grounded” with simultaneous contact with the treadmill.

Unlike free swimming, which requires up-hill, thrusting movements and all-out flexion to remain above water, exercising in a HydroHorse underwater treadmill system affords controlled workouts with sufficient concussion to promote bone density and encourage muscle development while minimizing injury or stress.

Underwater treadmill exercise in HydroHorse’s systems is proven to provide a comprehensive program for rehabilitation, training and conditioning. Made in the U.S.A., all HydroHorse systems come standard with Jacuzzi jets for a whirlpool massaging effect, are made with the horse’s safety at the forefront and high quality materials. The in-ground units can be made of fiberglass (to allow for relocation) or concrete, with safe entrance and exit ramps, custom fabricated welded wire side partitions and all new units include advanced digital control systems. Water Chillers are also now available – these can be retrofitted to existing units or ordered with new units. HydroHorse also offers installation, service and parts across the country.
