Must be Something in the Water

The Tom McCutcheon Equine Spa and Rehabilitation Center was recognized in the October issue of Western Horseman. The article goes on to say “…advancing therapies are lending new life to horses, especially those who enjoy competing. They are healing faster and many times make a full recovery.”

The center here offers an in-ground Aqua-Tred, cold saltwater therapy, Thera Plate vibration therapy, P3 Peak Pulse Performance, Ice Horse ice therapy and Equissage. We offer personalized care with safe, monitored turn out and the option of air conditioned stalls for horses recovering from surgery.

“In the aquatred, the horse has contact with the bottom of the unit, which can help build bone mass and heal injuries at a safe pace since the horse steps using his natural gait but with the force of only about 40 percent of its body weight.” Tom goes on to say, “They’ve [the horses] had a chance to heal any soft tissue and joint issues without the concussion, but they’re still able to maintain cardio [fitness].”
