Aqua therapy A targeted, contemporary approach to rehabilitation.

Spring Lane Ranch is proud to offer equine Aqua Therapy treatment using a custom-built underwater treadmill. This treadmill provides innovative rehabilitation for your equine athlete. The natural buoyancy provided by the water supports 60% – 70% of the horse’s body weight. This support results in incredible 50% – 60% reduction in impact, and provides trainers and handlers with the ability to rehabilitate the complex, and highly stressed, joints and supporting systems of equine limbs.

The underwater treadmill also provides significant resistance so your horse can develop and maintain cardiovascular fitness. This unique system combines the recovery process with the conditioning program so horses can return to work more prepared than ever before. Since the treadmill requires the horse to use the same muscle groups as standard dry-land work, the tissues are prepared to withstand the stresses of performance. Transitioning back to your dry-land program will be less of a shock. The strengthening of the back, hindquarters, and shoulders achieved with the therapy enables your horse to return to work more comfortably.

Many professional equestrians note an added benefit of underwater treadmill therapy is the facilitation of mental maturity in the subjects. Since your horse learns to trust the handler in a foreign environment, that lesson goes with the horse, back into his regular routine. Studies show this therapy reduces the stress of training and competition for performance horses.
