Benefits of Dry Treadmills

  • Controlled Exercise: Dry Equine treadmills allow for precise control of a horse's exercise regimen. Speed, incline, and duration can be adjusted to meet the specific fitness and training needs of the horse. This level of control is particularly useful for conditioning, rehabilitation, and therapeutic purposes.

  • Reduced Impact: Unlike traditional exercise surfaces, dry treadmills provide a consistent, cushioned surface that reduces the impact on a horse's joints and hooves. This can be especially beneficial for horses recovering from injuries, as it minimizes stress on injured areas.

  • Safety: Dry treadmills are designed with safety features such as handrails, emergency stop buttons, and non-slip surfaces to ensure the safety of both the horse and the handler or operator. This reduces the risk of accidents during exercise or rehabilitation sessions.

  • Rehabilitation: Dry treadmills are valuable tools for rehabilitating horses after injuries or surgeries. They allow for controlled, low-impact exercise, helping horses regain strength, flexibility, and range of motion while minimizing the risk of re-injury.

  • Performance Enhancement: For competitive horses, dry treadmills can be used to enhance their performance. Trainers can design specialized exercise routines to improve endurance, cardiovascular fitness, and muscle tone. This controlled environment can be particularly beneficial for racehorses and sport horses.

  • Convenience: Dry treadmills offer a convenient way to exercise horses regardless of weather conditions. They can be used year-round, providing a consistent training environment.

  • Psychological Benefits: Some horses benefit from the mental stimulation of treadmill exercise, especially when used as part of a varied training program. This can help alleviate boredom and reduce stereotypic behaviors.
  • The dry treadmill comes packed full with technology to achieve the full benefits for your horse(s) and make user interaction as simple as possible.

  • The treadmill has several variables including incline and belt speed allowing for adjustable intensity of training depending on each horses requiements.

  • Performance analysis features, combined with an internal programmable database will enable operators to select training or rehabilitation routines for individual horses.

  • Operators will be able monitor and log sessions for a making for a unique interaction for each horse.

Choosing Between Aqua and Dry Equine Treadmills

Aqua and dry equine treadmills are both specialized workout tools created to offer controlled and specific exercises for horses. However, they vary in their operational methods and the environments where they are utilised.

  • Aqua Treadmills

    Operating Environment:

    • Aqua treadmills operate in a pool or tank filled with water. The horse walks or exercises on a moving belt submerged in water.


    • Water provides buoyancy, reducing the impact on the horse's joints and supporting its weight. This can be particularly beneficial for rehabilitation and conditioning, as it lessens stress on limbs.


    • The water provides natural resistance, requiring more effort from the horse to move its limbs through the water. This resistance helps build muscle strength.


    • Aqua treadmills are often used in rehabilitation programs for horses recovering from injuries or surgeries due to the reduced impact and increased support provided by water.


    • Water level and resistance can often be adjusted to accommodate different horses, their fitness levels, and specific exercise requirements.
    Further Aqua Treadmill Information 
  • Dry Treadmills

    Operating Environment:

    • Dry equine treadmills operate on a continuous belt, similar to human treadmills. The horse exercises on a dry surface without any water involvement.


    • While it provides a controlled environment, a dry treadmill does not offer the buoyancy of water. The impact on joints is relatively higher compared to aqua treadmills.


    • Dry treadmills are versatile and can be used for various exercises, including walking, trotting, cantering workouts. They are not limited to rehabilitation but can also be used for general fitness and conditioning.

    Lower Maintenance Requirements:

    • Dry treadmills generally have simpler maintenance requirements compared to aqua treadmills. They do not involve water systems that require filtration, cleaning, or monitoring for optimal functionality.

    Traditional Training Simulation:

    • Dry treadmills provide an environment closer to traditional ground-based training, making them suitable for simulating real-life riding and training scenarios.

While both types of treadmills offer valuable benefits, the choice between aqua and dry equine treadmills often depends on the specific goals, preferences, and needs of the horse, trainer, and facility.

  • Rehabilitation Needs: If a horse requires low-impact rehabilitation, an aqua treadmill may be more suitable.
  • General Fitness and Conditioning: For overall fitness and conditioning without the need for water therapy, a dry treadmill may be preferred.
  • Space Requirements: Aqua treadmills may require more space due to the water tank, while dry treadmills are usually more compact.
  • Training Goals: The choice may also depend on specific training goals, such as building muscle strength or cardiovascular fitness.
