The swimming pool at the MSCERC is a concrete pool, measuring 25ft wide, 50ft long and 14ft deep. The pool holds 110,000 gallons of water. Swimming provides the opportunity to be exercised without concussion on the limbs. Swimming provides several benefits for purposes of conditioning including: improvement or maintenance of muscle tone and cardiopulmonary capacity, and cross-training for track conditioning. Swimming may also be used for strengthening, and post-operative rehabilitation
The underwater treadmill provides horses with buoyancy during exercise to minimize concussive forces while encouraging full joint range of motion. The underwater treadmill permits controlled movement and minimizes concussion on bones and joints to reduce the risk of recurring injury and improve and accelerate healing.
We are located on state route 20, 3 miles west of the village of Morrisville.
