All equine athletes in every discipline can benefit from utilizing the water treadmill. The water provides a resistance workout, and by manipulating the speed, incline, and level of the water a customizable workout is created for each horse’s individual needs. In injured horses the water adds buoyancy, as well as resistance to provide a challenging workout that minimizes undue stress on healing injuries.
