water treadmill for exercising horses

The Ferno Aquapacer

Give your horse the opportunity to achieve peak
performance! Whether rehabilitating an injury or
preparing for the performance of a lifetime,
the AquaPacer is the answer.

The AquaPacer utilizes two powerful tools to achieve accelerated
healing and conditioning:

1. The natural properties of water:Buoyancy, high resistance, hydrostatic
pressure and the thermal effects of
water have unparalleled therapeutic
benefits.

2. Hydrokinetic exercise: Encourages
the horse to use the same muscles,
ligaments and tendons that are
employed in traditional land based
exercise on a non-slip solid surface
treadmill reducing stress and trauma.

Therapeutic sessions in the AquaPacer
can be fully customized to each horse
through variation of water height,
treadmill speed and temperature.
