Here at MK Horse Walkers USA, we understand the importance of caring for your horse to ensure that they are getting enough exercise to stay healthy and happy. One way to accomplish this is through the use of horse exercisers. These machines provide a controlled environment for horses to exercise and can be especially useful for horses recovering from injury or those that need to build strength and endurance. In this post, we’ll take a look at four different types of horse exercisers that are available.
The Different Types of Horse Exercisers
The Straight Horse Exerciser
This is the most common type of horse exerciser, and it provides a straight, circular path for horses to walk or trot. The horse is usually tethered to a central point, and the machine is programmed to adjust the speed and direction of the exercise. This type of exerciser is ideal for rehabilitating injured horses or conditioning racehorses.
The Curve Horse Exerciser
The curve horse exerciser is similar to the straight horse exerciser but with a curved design. This allows for a more natural and varied gait for the horse. They can walk, trot, and canter in a controlled environment. This type of exercise is excellent for working on balance, flexibility, and strengthening of muscles.
The Treadmill Horse Exerciser
A treadmill horse exerciser is a great option for horses that have a difficult time exerting themselves outside, in poorly lit areas, and poor weather conditions. Horses can walk, trot, and canter on a moving belt without having to contend with the elements.
The Aqua Horse Exerciser
Finally, the aqua horse exerciser is a unique and less common type of horse exerciser, but it is ideal for preventing and recovering from injuries. Horses use a submerged, circular path while underwater to improve coordination, increase strength and flexibility, and reduce weight-bearing loads in their legs.
