We have a wonderful facility on-hand in our horse therapy pool. Horses out of work through injury can very quickly lose condition and muscle tone, but swimming can help maintain both – and their cardiovascular fitness.
Horses are able to exercise without supporting their own body weight, thus building muscle tone and improving fitness without putting any strain or pressure on their joints or back.
The pool is also an aid to freshen up tired horses that have been in hard work, making a change to their usual training routines.
You are welcome to come and watch your horse having their swimming lesson!
