    Strange way to exercise a horse...

    Anyone seen this video? The horse doesn't seem to mind much, but geez if I were him I would have been absolutely traumatized when the lift started going down and the water came through underneath!!!

    I guess this is one way to exercise a horse!!!

    They do this with dogs, its great! If the horse was not able to be ridden, and lunging would be too hard on his body in some way, water helps tons. Builds muscle and stay in shape without the weight bearing stress on legs.

    That was really interesting to see. I don't think I would want to know how Cobalt would react to that.

    We used to do this when I was on the track. We had a nice one like these a bit away, but had a small pond/lake that we used to exercise them in. It's a great therapy. Diesel would probably freak though lol

    Yeah racehorse get swims alot but I havent seen one like that before that drops into the water. Very cool. Dana wouldt like it though. The minute that the water starts bubbling through she'd be like 'GEMMEOUT GEMMEOUT!!!'

    These are really cool. When I was looking into a job with horse rehabilatation I found a lot of info on these pools. They started for horses with torn ligiments or broken legs, sprained ankles etc. Its a great way to exercise a horse and rehabilatate it without having to put pressure on the extremities that are hurt.

    Wow, very cool. I've heard about the swimming pools and seen them used in documentaries on racehorses but I never saw one with a lowering platform. My horse would run for the hills. He HATES water. LOL Shortie doesn't get his tootsies wet. Haha.
