Horses do not need to be taught to swim but they do need assistance in learning a good technique. Generally they love to swim. Once they become familiar with the technique they are able to build on the amount of time they spend in the water.
Swimming is an excellent form of exercise as well as a great fitness training aid for all disciplines. They are able to exercise without supporting their own body weight. It builds muscle tone and improves fitness without putting pressure or strain on the back and joints.
In the event of a prolonged stay with us we can make use of our well designed and equipped stables, our excellent exercise facilities, the horse walker for mobility, the all weather surface for ridden activities and the lunging area for specialist exercise performed by our in-house Mc Timoney-Corley Equine Spinal Therapist.

The pool has a maximum depth of 12ft.
