Hydrotherapy For Equines

Hydrotherapy has always been renowned for its muscle building properties and the temperature of the cold water in reducing pain and inflammation.​


Aqua treadmills can be used in water-based rehabilitation providing a low-impact, yet effective way for your equine to exercise. The buoyancy of the water reduces stress on the joints, which makes it an ideal option for equines with injuries or mobility issues. Additionally, the resistance of the water can provide a challenging workout for your horse, which can help to improve strength and endurance.


  • Water naturally creates resistance for more effective muscle build up and increase in stamina

  • Water depth reduces weight bearing by 40-60%

  • The FMBS belt is made from shock absorbing material - further reducing risk of strain on joints, ligaments and tendons

  • Controlled and monitored environment ensures a safe way to train

  • Reduces recovery time by up to 50-60% after injury

  • Improves horses who are naturally uneven and struggle with balance

  • Hydrostatic pressure assists circulation and reduces swelling

  • Water is 8 times denser than air, creating a controlled resistance workout for your horse

'The pressure on the limbs by the water surrounding them reduces the build-up of fluid and improves circulation. This is turn improves the range of motion, reduces pain and improves balance, thereby providing joint protection.’
'Hydrotherapy is increasingly being recognised as a valuable cross-training option for equine rehabilitation and fitness.'
