The Brooksby Equine Rehabilitation Centre at Brooksby Melton College offers hydrotherapy and training services for fitness and rehabilitation purposes.

The rehabilitation centre is a commercial business offering services which benefit a range of horses in their fitness and training for competition, or aid in their recovery from competition or injury.

We are also closely linked with our Higher Education programmes, offering Equine Performance Science degrees including modules such as Equine Rehabilitation and Therapy. The state of the art centre provides us with a fantastic educational tool for students to use in their studies offering opportunity to research the use of hydrotherapy with college horses.

Aqua Treadmill

The very latest in technology, the Activo-Med aqua treadmill is an exercise tool which also offers therapeutic elements to aid in the recovery or post acute phase of an injury and assists in the conditioning of the muscles and the heart and lungs, while reducing the stress on the tendons and ligaments. The Activo-Med system uses the natural properties of water to create a low-impact treadmill workout, which increases cardiovascular activity and muscle strength. The system is designed to be an essential part of post-operative recovery and training, boosting general health and well-being through controlled exercise.

Solarium

Our MaxuSS Pro Solarium is the top of the range in equipment and improves the performance and condition. The heat penetrates into the underlying muscles and helps to stimulate the circulation. It also enables us to dry the horses that have been using the aqua therapy facilities by using hot air diffusers which reach all around the horse.
