With the water treadmill, horses are able to exercise in a controlled environment with increased joint range of movement and reduced impact shock. Our skilled and experienced team construct suitable programmes in consultation with your therapist and vet to ensure the exercise is productive to training and/or supports your horse's rehabilitation. Any questions regarding the suitability of this exercise for your horse can be discussed with Dr Kathryn Nankervis who has over 20 years' experience in equine water treadmill research. Kathryn can be contacted via the Equine Therapy Centre office on 01452 702123.
The Sato high speed treadmill has a top speed of 35mph or 16 metres/second, and can be used on a daily basis for the controlled exercise of resident therapy cases and for the training and testing of racehorses referred for treadmill endoscopy. We get great results with tendonitis and desmitis cases as we can provide a truly progressive work programme by precise control of the rate at which the speed, distance and incline is introduced.
Our facilities offer an abundance of ground schooling and horse assessment opportunities. The main Hartpury Arena features a 70m x 40m riding surface, while a further three indoor arenas (60m x 25m, 60m x 21m, and 25m x 35m) are ideal for ground schooling or lunging. The international outdoor arena is 80m x 60m with an adjacent 60m x 30m warm-up arena, complementing a covered 60m x 30m arena adjoined by a 22m-diameter round pen. All arenas have Andrews Bowen surfaces.
Electrotherapy, directing small currents of electricity through the skin for medical treatment, has been widely used in human sports medicine and rehabilitation to treat injuries and optimize performance. Various modalities have made their way into sport horse medicine and rehabilitation. Electrotherapies are built around energy sources that range from acoustics to vibrations. We can deliver interferential, neurostimulation and ultrasound according to the programme designed by your therapy team.
