I initially brought my dressage horse Fly to the water treadmill to build up the muscles in his hindquarters and over the lumber area of his back, also to improve his fitness in a non – intensive form, the water treadmill does just that and much more. It has most certainly increased his muscles behind and fitness immensely in only a couple of months.! As well as producing more length to his stride, he is now beginning to sit more behind too which is due to the water making him have to drive more with his hind legs, alleviating the weight from his front. Fly then finishes each time with a session on the vita floor, overall, I cannot thank Ann and her team enough for the use of the water treadmill, the huge difference it has made to Fly’s performance & well-being is undeniable! And shall continue to be a regular part of his weekly regime. We have begun our season, winning our first competition, which speaks for itself!
