    Omg my horse would probably love this! She likes water! It sure is a good way to rehabilitate horses that need that kind of work.

    I'd love to have one of these. Awesome exercise AND relaxation tool. Simulates the mind and is good for the body :)

    My question is why do they have his tail tied to the fence behind him? Is that to keep him from moving forward when he swims?

    I'm sure that getting a horse used to that is just like anything else we have to teach them. The desensitization process probably takes a while for that though...

    So this is cool but I don't like that the head it tied- think if your head was tied and you had to swim, I would like to see them let their head be where it wants to be- I have swam on a swim team since I was 6 and I would FREAK out if I was restricted haha

    Yeh that's what I was just thinking! It sure does look like it. I've seen horses swimming in pools with the handler walking along beside them, it was a long pool. But not with both ends tied

    I've seen plenty of horses in swimming pools. I'd love to do it. Swimming is great for all kinds of critters. I've always seen a ramp into water, a swimming lane, and then a ramp out. Have you seen a video of a horse on a treadmill? It's cool to see but think of what happens when people fall while running on a treadmill, and then imagine a poor horse. O_O

    This isn't the one I was talking about, but check out his legs as he hits the ground!

    That treadmill video was mezmorizing...

    I hope that water was warmed for it. That would also be an exspinsive way to exersize it.
