Water Treadmill

Our state of the art water treadmill from FMBs Therapy Systems is specifically designed to aid rehabilitation, but is also an essential part of routine training to improve overall well being, suppleness, balance, core strength, muscle tone to both improve performance and help reduce the risk compensatory injuries.


Hydrotherapy will benefit every single horse or pony, regardless of their age, size, or discipline. Another MAJOR benefit is we can work them in the dry, even when schools, walkers and fields are flooded! 💦

Does water depth affect back kinematics of horses during water treadmill exercise?

Increasing the depth of the water in a treadmill has been shown to increase the mediolateral (side to side) range of motion of the pelvis in a horse as it picks its feet up and pushes through the resistance of the water. It can also increase the flexion and extension of the thoracic spinal region - that’s across the withers and the back to just behind the saddle.

FAQ image

Can I claim for hydrotherapy on my insurance?

Yes, depending on your policy. If you have cover for complementary therapies this would include hydrotherapy if the vet recommends it. Please check with your insurance before your visit.

FAQ image

Do I need a vet referral?

We don’t need a referral letter but we do need you to check with your vet that they are happy for your horse to have hydrotherapy. If you are planning to claim back the session please check with your insurance first.

FAQ image

Where does the water go?

We re use as much water as we can, as we are mindful of being environmentally friendly. The water goes through a pre filtration mesh, then into a filtration tank which uses a combination of UV and charcoal to filter the water.

If any horses are particularly frightened of the net behind them and they need to poop in the water we will manually drain that down the drain to avoid very dirty water going into the tanks to be reused.
