At our state of the art facility with the use of the newest European technology and equipment, we offer rehabilitation for horses with various ailments, as well as training for sport horses. Our focus is on the stimulation of the blood circulation and through the use of non-invasive methods help the horse to reach it’s fullest potential. We aim to help the horse’s natural self healing processes to stimulate the body to recover.
General Rehab Program:
Depending on the injury or disease, we develop a program specifically designed to target the problem. Our equipment has been used in Europe for a number of years with great success. It has a proven track record for tendon and ligament injuries, as well as bone related problems, and colic.
Fitness and Injury Prevention Program:
We also have a program for training and fitness which is specifically for horses who have been at rest for a while, or have had a lay-up time, and who need to be made fit again. We also use this program for horses that are already in full training as a form of injury prevention, thus eliminating in lots of cases the need for lots of medicines and injections.
Vitafloor, Computerized Vibrating Floor Therapy:
This is the most innovative technology, which has been very successfully used and tested in Europe, where it was developed. Horses have been using this therapy for more than 7 years there with very promising results. This is a non invasive treatment where the Vitafloor vibration technology is used to stimulate the blood circulation leading to a healthier stronger horse. There are various different frequency settings to target various areas, such as internal organs, soft tissue damage or bone problems. This therapy is especially helpful for horses unable to walk or move, as they only have to stand on our Vitafloor to get a good blood circulation going which in turn helps the body to regenerate and recover.
European Horse Exerciser:
Horses are designed to move and graze most of the day. In our modern horse management, many horses are not exercising enough to keep the body at it’s maximum performance, leading to many medical problems such as colic and laminitis. We incorporate as much free movement as possible for our horses in our treatment programs. Once a horse is able to walk, we put him in the free moving exerciser where we can adjust the speed and direction. Due to the fact that the horse is not pulled by a rope, but moves at his natural speed, he is able to relax and stretch his top line, so increasing the elasticity of his muscles.
This is a European design using short wave infra-red heat, which stimulates the immune system and provides vitamin D which is vital for the absorption of calcium and phosphates. The infra-red also increases metabolic activity in cells, causing the capillaries to dilate. This in turn increases blood flow through the whole body, oxygenating the cells which helps remove the toxins and so helps a quicker recovery.
Water Treatment System:
Fundamental to the overall health of all living organisms is water! We use a unique system which as well as filtering the water (very useful for barns on a well system to filter out toxins), also reorganizes the structure of the water, making it smell and taste like natural spring water. This in turn encourages more intake which is beneficial to the whole body, and will assist in the cleaning and detox process.
Game Ready Icing System:
Game Ready® Equine is the secret weapon of top riders and veterinarians for preventing injury in their horses and speeding recovery from a multitude of ailments. The Game Ready System is used for post-workout therapy, chronic lameness, acute lameness, cellulitis, tendonitis, pre- and post-operative care, bowed tendons, stocked-up legs, wind puffs, and more. Delivering dry cold and active compression, Game Ready Equine utilizes the same physical therapy and athletic training principles relied on by human athletes, calling for the use of RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation).
