A Fit Horse is a Healthy, Happy Horse.
The main feature of the Fitness Center and our customizable fitness programs is a suite of complementary equipment from Horse Gym USA®. The equipment is safe and legal for use before, during, and after FEI and USEF events. The Fitness Center equipment is versatile enough to provide benefits to fit horses and horses requiring rehabilitation (if approved by the horse's primary veterinarian). For horses that may be a bit apprehensive of the equipment, our trained operators will introduce them through proper orientation methods, and most horses will quickly learn to relax and enjoy their treatments and fitness workouts. The Fitness Center has been designed and equipment selected to benefit EVERY RIDDEN HORSE... regardless of shape, size, fitness level, and discipline.
The Fitness Center features:
The WATER Treadmill
From Horse Gym USA®, the WATER Treadmill is designed to exercise horses in water up to shoulder height. It can also be used as a dry system and has the option to be used with or without incline in both water and dry modes.

PROVIDING A SAFE, CLEAN SESSION FOR YOUR HORSE:
I was looking to add to Rim’s fitness to improve his overall condition and endurance.
As he is turning 16 in June, I wanted a fitness solution that would not require extra pounding on his joints and feet. I went and watched a session. I was impressed enough to give it a try with Rim. As the weeks went on with Rim’s water treadmill sessions, I began to notice that he was more symmetrical. He had trouble in the past holding his left lead on training gallops at the track. After 6 water treadmill sessions, he was easily holding both leads. He had more energy the day after a session but it was productive rather than hot.
