Hydrotherapy for Horses

Background:

The most famous success story of this therapy is Red Rum, winner of three Grand Nationals and many other prestigious races. He was trained on Southport beach utilising the benefits of salt water surf, to strengthen the tissues whilst stimulating circulation.

Modern hydrotherapy uses chilled saline water applied in water jets to the lower legs. This strengthens the tissues, reduces inflammation, swelling and pain.
