EQUINE SWIMMING POOL
Swimming of horses has long been accepted as a highly beneficial exercise for conditioning and rehabilitation.
Swimming develops excellent muscle tone and helps improve cardiovascular function and fitness, while keeping the horse's weight off the legs and joints.
Swimming can considerably shorten recovery times compared to traditional methods of box rest and phased return to normal exercise. Swimming is often possible for horses with injuries which prevent other forms of exercise.
Higher Spen Equine operates a modern, purpose built equine swimming pool. The swimming pool is circular enabling short or longer swimming sessions, and allowing the horse to exercise on both 'reins'. At over 3m wide and 3m deep, the pool can accommodate horses of any size.
Benefits of equine swimming:
We offer swimming on an individual session basis or longer term programmes which can be provided on a non-residential or residential basis.
Please call us to discuss the specific needs of your horse.

Look out for a great article on equine swimming featuring Higher Spen in this week's Horse and Hound!
We reopened for swimming on 24th January following our annual refurbishment. You can only really appreciate the depth of the pool when it's empty!
