ECB Water Treadmill
Gundy Park Equine, situated in the beautiful Hunter Valley region of NSW, offers the first ECB Equine/Canine Water Treadmill in Australia.
EQUINE REHABILITATION & RECOVERY
Aquatic Rehabilitation has long been recognised as having beneficial effects. It is a safe and effective treatment option for managing primary musculoskeletal injuries whilst reducing or limiting harmful compensatory gait abnormalities.
Exercising in water provides an effective medium for increasing joint mobility, promoting normal patterns of movement, whist reducing the risk of developing secondary compensatory musculoskeletal injuries caused by primary conditions.
The enhancement in muscle strength and function whilst decreasing stress and loading of the joints can significantly improve balance, poor motor control and discomfort typically found in horses with osteoarthritic changes.
The ECB Salt Water Treadmill can also offer power and endurance training without the influence of the rider and is therefore a very effective tool in both maintaining and increasing fitness and performance.
The Gundy Park ECB Treadmill is designed for Equine & Canine use.
We are excited and proud to announce that we have the first ECB Water Treadmill with an incline available for use by the public in Australia.
