The most appropriate instrument to give horses a lot of good exercise is the horse exerciser in which the horses run without being tethered.
BELEBRO, specialist with the most experience!
The horse exerciser is an invention of Belebro. The Belebro model guarantees the most balanced construction, the least load, the least wear and tear and the greatest safety for the horses. The design is registered and internationally protected by law (WIPO no. DM/018398, 21 Dec. 1990).
Five factors can be trained that, according to research by the Research Station for Horse Husbandry in Lelystad, determine the performance:
Character: focused tempo training, whereby horses sometimes go to their utmost.
Quality of the legs: short and intense stimuli (interval training) improves bone tissue.
Coordination: by applying alternating movements at different speeds.
Flexibility: less stiffness
Reflexes: improvement to a great extent: considerably less risk of injury.
Research at the Testing Station for Horse Husbandry profession in Lelystad, the Netherlands, has shown that nutrients and exercise are the two factors that have the most influence on horses’ health and especially the quality of the legs.
- Better muscle development, especially the back muscles
- Higher performance
- Fewer colic cases
- Fewer leg problems
- Fewer injuries
- Less risk of atactic abnormalities (walking freely)
- Reduction risk Osteochondrosis Dissecans (OCD) 60%
- Reducing the risk of osteoarthritis
Stress-free walking is the precondition for achieving the intended results with a Horse exerciser. Horses must become familiar with the exerciser in the right way, so that they move relaxed (‘over the back’) in the horse exerciser.
The horse exercise, fence, soil and environment are decisive factors for this. Good hooves are also essential for the proper functioning of organs and the musculoskeletal system as a whole (joints, muscles and tendons in legs, back, neck).
