Free Swimming Pool
Our Free Swimming Pool is completely indoor and allows us to use this therapy year round and in inclement weather conditions. The swimming pool is beneficial to many different horses including horses that are laminitic to help stimulate good blood flow and circulation to muscles that are otherwise unable to be used.
Swimming is also extremely beneficial to horses that need to gain extra wind and body condition without the concussive force of running or riding. Swimming is a very aerobic activity and will allow horses to lose fat, gain muscle, strengthen their top line, as well as gain airpower otherwise only achieved thru running or sprinting. We have also observed a natural maturing as horses become comfortable swimming and learn to trust our staff in entering and exiting the swimming pool.
Safety is always a top priority in our rehab and our highly-trained staff uses two head ropes and two secure tail ropes to help stabilize the horse when learning to swim.
