The ECB Aqua treadmill is the first of its type in Ireland.

  • Aqua training is a power and endurance training, without the weight of the rider.

  • The ECB trains specific muscle groups.

  • By moving in the water, horses are getting power training without the high pressure on their tendons and skeleton.

  • By moving against the pressure of the water, horses start automatically using more of their back muscles and rear part muscles which gives them a stronger top line, more balance and coordination in all movements.

  • Muscle groups will be evenly trained and balanced.

  • Their mind is fresh, the body is loose and their walking position is straight.

  • ECB water trainer is a unique supplement to the daily training and rehabilitation for sport horses of all kinds
