Why choose a Cambros Equine Treadmill?
With the development of the horse’s optimum back muscles and hind quarters in mind, the Cambros equestrian treadmill has been developed with the benefit of variable speed and incline to focus on improving strength, flexibility and stamina. The horse treadmill also focuses on maximising balance and coordination to ensure the horse’s peak performance.
In comparison to the conventional horse walker, the dimensions of the equestrian treadmill mean that it is not only ideal for stables, liveries and large yards but also for those with limited space looking to improve a horses fitness in a controlled and structured manner.
What are the benefits of an equine treadmill over a traditional horse walker?
The use of an equestrian treadmill for conditioning a horse offers several advantages:
The variable speed and incline of the treadmill allows the workout to mimic over-ground conditioning. Walking the horse on an incline is a great way of improving stamina and building muscle strength, particularly in the back and hind quarters.
The combination of adjustable speed and incline, as well as the ability to control the intensity and duration of a session, provides ample variety in a horse’s conditioning program allowing it to be tailored to the horse’s specific needs.
The treadmill belt provides a smooth, consistent surface, eliminating injuries from uneven footing. Equine treadmills have proven to be particularly useful for rehabilitation work.
As they can be contained indoors, requiring remarkably less space than other forms of exercise (such as a horse walker), equine treadmills can be used regardless of the weather.
Not only is the equine treadmill an effective method of exercise, but also a great means of monitoring the horse during training. With the horse being relatively stationary to an observer, it is possible for the trainer to quickly observe irregularities in gait, for lameness problems to be detected or to evaluate improvements in horses recovering from injuries. An optional heart monitor is also available to evaluate the horse whilst exercising
