One of the best things about the cold is that it does not override the beneficial effects of the healing process.
Case studies collated from the University of Sydney Orange
have shown that the HORSE-TRAINER EQUINE SPAS are of benefit in the most frequent lower leg injuries to the horse.
• Tendon & ligament injuries
• Bone damage i.e. shin soreness
• Joint condition
• Fractures and splints
• Jarr-up, concussion
• Laceration & infections of lower limbs
• Postoperative complications
• Healing of wounds
• Increased hoof growth
• Soft tissue damage
The application of cold triggers three basic reactions.
Firstly, at a cellular level, the metabolic response of the cells is reduced, so the cells need less oxygen to function and thereby suffer less hypoxic injury.
Secondly, the permeability of the blood vessel walls is decreased, thus reducing the amount of fluid that accumulates in
the injured area.
And thirdly, the cold numbs the area to a certain degree, acting as a topical analgesic.
Rehabilitation, strength and healing
Whether rehabilitating an injury or preparing for the performance of a lifetime, HORSE-TRAINER PRODUCTS is the answer!
The application of cold to an injured and/or painful area is hardly a new therapeutic concept. The Greek physician Hippocrates wrote about the use of cold therapy to control pain and swelling in the 14th century BC.
The roman physician Galen described the use of cold compresses for analgesia following soft tissue injuries in the 1st century A.D. During the Middle Ages, ice was used for preparative anaesthesia.
Cold therapy in the form of ice has been used extensively in the athletic training environment for the treatment of sports injuries for many years.
HORSE-TRAINER SPA is incredibly reliable, and the machine is
produced in stainless steel.
The salt concentration of the water has a positive impact on the healing process. Higher salt concentration has a greater drawing effect, thereby influencing the dispersal of fluids accumulated around the injury.
Additionally, the proportion of the various salts we use has been found to influence the resolution of the injury.
The greater the depth of the water, the greater the physical pressure exerted on the tissues, which again aids in the dispersal
of accumulated fluids.
Aeration of the water has a twofold effect: the dissolved oxygen level of the water is increased and the soft tissue is subjected to a gentle massaging action.
The increased oxygen levels aid the healing process much as hyperbaric chambers do for humans, while the massaging effect influences dispersal of fluids.
In addition, horses tend to relax more than in still cold water,
as is evidenced by their reduced heart rates.

A Genius Aid
HORSE-TRAINER WALK has for years turned out to be market-leading within training aids, whether it is used for training or
preparation for a contest or for retraining a horse after an injury. The many unique solutions of the HORSE-TRAINER WALK
make it indisputably the most safe and thus optimum solution for your horse.
One of the best in the world, if not the best!!!
Operated at the horse’s head, which ensures safety
Pre-programmed with 10 ﬁxed programs
HORSE-TRAINER WALK is a training machine for horses. It can
be used both in the professional training stable, by the ambitious elite rider, at the riding school, by hobby horse riders as
well as the horse breeder’s with many young horses.
International veterinary congresses have tested this alternative training method thoroughly and say: “It is a perfect solution for building up the swing of the horse’s back, its carry ing
capacity, and balance. It turns out that at least 75% of the
swing of the back is lost, when saddle and rider get on a horse.” Furthermore, measurements show that horses after months
of stable rest are retrained within three weeks.
HORSE-TRAINER WALK is computer controlled and operated at
the head of the horse thus ensuring top safety, and that the
introduction to a new horse to the machine is safe and easy,
whether it is an unbroken youngster or a scrap racehorse.
The display shows speed, remaining time, and belt inclination
The machine has been pre-programmed with 10 fixed programs,
which are controlled from the control box by means of a finger touch display. These 10 programs have different lengths
of time and incline variations. (Up hill work). These programs
cover 85% of all training needs. The computer can furthermore be programmed with up to 100 individual programs.
Programs up to 100 individual programs
The variable adjustable speed makes it easy to operate and makes it possible to adjust the speed from 0 to 15 km/h. The speed must be tailored to the individual horse’s pace to make the best possible use of it.
During operation, status of speed in km/h, remaining time of the running program, and belt inclination (up hill work) in degrees are displayed.
Can register up to 100 horse names in the register
The computer can register up to 100 horses in the name register.
HORSE-TRAINER WALK is incredibly reliable, and the machine has been fully electroplated, which makes it resistant to rain, snow and bad weather. HORSE-TRAINER are easy to maintain. We have treadmills installed at yards in north Sweden with winters where snow and minus degrees down to –25°C is everyday life, and in Dubai with dust, heat, sun and degrees above 45°C. HORSE-TRAINER works HORSE-TRAINER is provided with 3 emergency stop buttons
everyday under these conditions. These machines are installed
outdoor, only provided with the maintenance-free roof for HORSE-
TRAINER, making this solution easy and space saving.
The safety of the HORSE-TRAINER WALK is in top and it is one
of the, if not the safest on the market. 3 emergency stop buttons have been mounted on the machine allowing the belt to
be stopped both easily and fast.
Adjustable safety rear bar
The adjustable safety rear bar can be operated from the out
side of the machine. The rear bar enables the computer to
measure whether the rolling resistance increases. If so, the
belt will stop and restart after 10 seconds.
The stumble protection is a photocell that can be adjusted to
the height of the horse’s back. It is adjustable from 135 to 175
The stumble protection can be adjusted from
If a horse should stumble, the stumble protection will be
released and the belt will stop immediately.

An Extreme Aid
HORSE-TRAINER WATER is one of the best water treadmills available for horses all over the world. For regular conditioning of your healthy horse and faster healing of your injured horse. HORSE-TRAINER WATER is a training machine for horses. It can be used both in the professional stable, by the ambitious elite rider as well as for rehabilitation of horses. The HORSE-TRAINER WATER is a unique water treadmill allowing horses to be exercised at walk speeds, in any height of water up to around shoulder height. The benefits of the water treadmill are increasing the buoyancy of the horse and thus reducing weight bearing and concussion on the limbs as well as providing a resistance to limb movement. The resistance of the water appears to induce specific gait modifications at different water heights, and these modifications can be incorporated into the rehabilitation programmed. International tests on this alternative training method show that “it is a perfect solution for accelerated conditioning, improved performance, promotes correct posture and a balanced gait, improves the heart function, enhances muscle development and improves flexibility.” Furthermore, measurements have shown that rehabilitation on the water treadmill reduced the recovery time by 50-60%.
HORSE-TRAINER WATER treadmill is computer controlled and operated at the head of the horse thus ensuring top safety. The machine has been pre-programmed with 10 fixed programs, which are controlled from the control box by means of a finger Operated at the horse’s head, which ensures safety touch display.
These 10 programs have different lengths of time and incline variations (up hill work). The computer can furthermore be programmed with up to 100 individual programs. The variable adjustable speed makes it easy to operate and makes it possible to adjust the speed from 0 to 11 km/h. The speed must be tailored to the individual horse’s pace to make automatic water control via display the best possible use of it. During operation, status of speed in km/h, remaining time of the running program, and belt inclination (up hill work) in degrees are displayed. On the display, you can easily control water to and from the tank.
