Benefits of using Aqua Icelander
Describe the key benefits of underwater treadmill exercise in horses. How can incorporating a 30-day transition period of Aqua-treadmill exercise be beneficial in horses coming out of a lay off from an injury?
Equine PERFORMAX center at the Jaeckle Centre started using Aqua Icelander cold saltwater options in September 2020. Returning to training after an injury can cause more damage if not done with the proper equipment.
The Aqua Icelander compliments traditional training methods to create diversity in training and offers a safe and effective solution to condition your horse, and is used by elite competitors to train top-performing horses.
The Aqua Icelander utilizes a submerged treadmill that eases the
concussive nature of traditional training,
allowing horses to increase their fitness without
the fear of injury.
Every time a client comes to the barn and gets to witness a horse in the treadmill:
“I can’t believe how much they engage their core”
“This is totally not what I expected”
“Look at how high they lift up over the water”
“The reach and extension is amazing”
“You can do hill work?!”
We absolutely love showing everyone what we do and what we can accomplish here! Come visit us!
