Underwater Treadmill

South Valley Equine offers an underwater treadmill to help with equine healing and conditioning. The treadmill is the The Horse Gym 2000 Aquatrainer. It is the first of its kind in the United States. It blends the powerful benefits of other underwater treadmills with unmatched filtration and safety features. With this state of the art system we can get horses into competition ready condition or over injuries in a fraction of the time it takes with traditional methods. Studies show a 30% reduction in recovery time after surgeries and up to 60% faster recovery from soft tissue injuries. This is key to regaining you horse’s top performance level in a short amount of time. The underwater treadmill is also great at accelerating conditioning of a horse, 20 sessions on the treadmill are similar to 90 days of hard riding.
